The phone is identical to one my mum bought me in the early 80s. It was very popular at the time. I used to love that phone.

The white flat plastic oblong is probably the mattress part of a cot, Spot-on or sometimes a copy! The rocking chair may be Dol toi does any one else think this? The red seated chair is possibly Elgin it is the same as the set in Faith Eaton's Hobbies House.

I thought the red-seated chair was probably Triang period furniture from the 30s? same design as Elgin, but later and not stamped Elgin (obviously!)

The phone is NOT Pit-a-Pat - these were made in the 60's and were very cheap. I made a fake PaP one using the receiver part on a chunk of wood in one of my houses when I saw a real PaP go for over £100 . The sink is around 1946, can't remember the make, the r.h. chair bears some Elgin characteristics but the legs don't. I see one is missing - do you think that the other 3 are replacements? The red-seated chair could be German - there are a lot of Elgin look-alikes that come from there. Not all Elgin is stamped with the name just to make identification a trifle more difficult.

I'm sure you're right, Valerie, I just knew I'd seen them before but probably that's why! The chairs are puzzling me, the legs are too plain for Elgin but the rest of them looks very similar!

Plus a Triang Jenny's Home aqua dressing table, on the right.

I have a couple of these phones & as they were very cheap I don't think they are Pit-a-Pat.

The phone might be Pit-a-Pat, I have not seen enough Pit-a-Pat to know. Is there the remnants of a red and black paper label on the bottom? It would be worth posting close-ups of these three pieces so someone more knowledgeable than I can help. Pit-a-Pat is again very desirable.

Those two tall wooden chairs, between the high chair and the Spot On (Triang) dressing table look like they might be Elgin (for Triang) to me, the legs are very plain but the rest of them looks very like some Elgin I have. Are they stamped on the bottom, by any chance? If they are, they are VERY sought after, especially the upholstered one, and you will be astonished at the price they fetch (when they can be found). If they are not, they are still rather lovely pieces and pre-WWII, probably early 20th century.
