The toilet is Triang Jennys Home, which is 1:16 scale. The red 3-piece suite is a 1:24 copy of the Triang Spot-On 1:16 one, made in Hong Kong by Blue Box. The dining suite is also 1:24 Blue Box, but wasn't an imitation of a Triang design. I can't identify the pink plastic dressing table. The tiny plastic babies are probably "Made in Hong Kong". Father Christmas brought my childhood dolls house in 1962, and I won one of these babies in a cracker pulled at dinner that day. The doll standing on the sofa is by Ari, made in Germany. Barton was a UK distributor for these dolls in the late 1960s.


That so made me laugh a baby in a cracker.

Thanks again.

I know what you mean.

I've catalogued the items into Brand, and bundled the generic furniture with the DOlls House, and priced the others separately.

I'm using Facebook to find a local collector. If not, then Ebay it is.

Almost all my "knowledge" comes from the work of Marion Osborne, .

What lovely memories Brooksey.
You really know your stuff!!
Thanks for all your help.

Is E-bay really the best place for these?

Almost all my "knowledge" comes from the work of Marion Osborne, who has spent more than half her life researching and cataloguing the dolls houses and furniture produced by British toy manufacturers in the 20th century. Without her, I would know nothing!

eBay certainly reaches a great number of people. Unfortunately, as Zoe has already said, these pieces aren't likely to raise high prices. What I would say is, that apart from the small accessories, like the crockery and pans, which could be bundled together, the furniture is more likely to sell as separate items rather than a large job lot, because collectors are often looking for specific pieces. I know I'm put off job lots because I would end up with lots of stuff I can't use, just to get the piece(s) I do want. (By this, I don't mean that you should split the 3-piece or dining suites into individual items - a set like those is a separate lot).
