This set is small, smaller than Lundby and very delicate wood. I discovered the table is a draw leaf and works perfectly. The modular boxes are rather similar to Lido units. I am thinking Scandinavian 60s or 70s, possibly Danish. There are no markings. Anyone any ideas?

Linda, may I copy this photo into the newly-created Miner Industries category?

Now the sun has come out (at last) I have just taken some better close ups of the furniture. When I manage to upload them I will add them to the Miner Industries category. Julie. M

Miner Industries produced a 1:18 bendy family in the 1970s. They have none of the delicacy of this furniture! The children are similar to the small bendy Barton ones from the early 1970s. I have a few examples of the dolls in the crowd of holidaymakers in "Deanhaven" (my 1960s holiday camp). I got one family still in the box - I'll put some pictures on.

You found some lovely items, so nice to see all members purchases, this is an interesting set and the units with the glass sliders are very similar to 0/Half's life size book shelves he purchased in the 90s second hand each level is separate and can be stack however you want and seem to look good with any style of furniture.

What an interesting and unusual find, Linda. It looks very delecate and well-made. I look forward to seeing what setting you come up with for it.

They were made in Japan, and sold in the US in the mid 60s, but apart from that, I don't think much is known about Miner Industries.

Thank you so much for the information Rebecca, it didn't take long, lol
I really love it and can now see how it would look in a room setting.

Really lovely, a great find! They're Miner's Rooms-in-miniature - I will try to post a couple of links to blogposts about them.
