Thank you very much for this information Julie. I am very pleased that it confirms my feeling that this is a quite early No. 50. And please keep coming to visit!

Sorry Julie, forgot to confirm that the outside paintwork is original and untouched - and I will leave it that way.

This is my third visit to this gorgeous house!

Judging from the style of roof (if it is original), the slots for the floors and the hardboard walls, this is a quite early model. Is the outside paintwork original? If it is, those flowers will date the house to c1950 - 54. The very first houses, produced in 1948/9, didn't have flowers. Whilst no definite date for their introduction has yet been discovered, it is possible that they were being applied by the latter half of 1950. They disappeared again around the time that plywood started to be used for the walls, once post-war shortages had eased, sometime in the mid-50s. The green paint used for the windows was a darker shade on the 1948/49 houses, and tended to get lighter as time went on, ending up a Wedgwood blue. The shade seen here may suggest that this house dates to the very early 1950s.

What a lovely shot of this house - dolls' houses always seem to look better outside but sadly. they can't stay out there.
