Alicia, how come you can add URLs/links to your Comments and I can't? If I try, my Comment just vanishes!!

I've just spotted another Bassett-Lowke cooker on site! It can be seen in "Ye Village Stores" in the G. & J. Lines Database Album, photo 64, but I can't include the link.

Thank you Alicia for the your help to get some more information. The bulb under the hotplate looks original. Can you send me some pictures of how that light works or a description of it.

There is a bassett Lowke society they would probably give you more info.

My cooker looks the same as yours but has a bulb under the hotplate. I haven't tried lighting it though.

To hear that the cooker and sink are made by Bassett-Lowke is wonderful, but I am anxious about what there is more, especially the catalogue.

What a fast reaction. Thank you. Do you have more details, how old it is or maybe a picture of your cooker, or where I can find more details, for example books.


Bassett-Lowke was very well known as a manufacturer of model trains and ships. It started in the late 1890s, and went out of business in 1965 (the company and name were then bought and sold several times - the name is now owned by Hornby).

Bassett-Lowke scale model furniture was only produced for a short time in the 1930s, so it is quite rare. You are very lucky to have some! The catalogue of scale-model furniture was, I believe, issued in 1931. I am not sure how long the furniture was available for, but certainly not after WWII started.

Bassett Lowkes cooker. I have the same with a bulb to light it.


Thank you, Alicia! Do you have a copy of their Scale Model Furniture catalogue? I would love to have an article about it - I know Wendy Hobday has a copy of the catalogue, as she was thinking about an article 5 years ago, but as she's very busy, it would be great to know of another ...

There are some VERY fast members here, Marja - and a huge pool of knowledge! It's not often that something goes unrecognised by at least one of us.

This cooker is delightful!
