I've got several GeeBee houses, and this is definitely one.
I love the window canopies.

It's a lovely house. My childhood house was a slightly later version of this, the DH10/C (collapsible) with a sliding front. I like this better though, I think the hinged door is more satisfying. One thing that always bothered me about mine is that the front door is the same size as the single window above it - I always thought it should be a little bit wide and taller.

I hope you find a loving new home for this nice house!

I do find Gee Bee houses very attractive, and they're surprisingly sturdy. I have a little Gee Bee cottage which I love. Sadly, I have not an inch of room left in my (real-life) tiny cottage home for another dolls house!

Thanks Zoe :)

If you do a search for GeeBee on eBay you will see that they are for sale around the £40-£50 mark and if you then tick the 'sold' (not 'completed' as that doesn't tell you what they actually sold for) box on the left hand side you will see that the vast majority have sold for less than £40.

I can't see anything of much value amongst the furniture which is quite run of the mill and fairly widely available. The one item that might have fetched more than a few pounds it the cooker but it is missing the door and the eye-level cooling rack so isn't worth much either. If I have missed anything, then I hope someone will correct me.

Jan is right, it's a GeeBee. It's probably not so obvious to non DH collectors but the windows are quite different to Triang, e.g. these have little handles and Triang windows don't. Also, the shade/canopy above the downstairs window is very typically GeeBee and is never seen on a Triang. I can see from Rebecca's magazine article on this site that it's a GeeBee DH/10 from the 1960s. (Issue 22, September 2014, page 5.)

Thank you. I thought this WAS the for sale section! :)

Does anyone have an idea of a guide price?

Think it would sell quickly on eBay and they would give guide price, unless a member here would like it you could add it to the For Sale section on here.

Thank you all. I did a large google search and just came up with DH/10 as well, so that seems to confirm it.

Now where would be the best place to sell this?

I'd like it to go somewhere it'll be loved.

aah thanks. You're right.... it DOES look just like one of those.

Now I'm confused... it looks like both Gee Bee AND Triang!
