Dolls' Houses Past & Present

About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca. I live in Australia, in Darwin, right at the top of the continent. My interest in vintage dolls houses was started by my grandmother, who collected dolls and dolls houses in the 1960s and 70s (she lived in Oxshott, Surrey). She gave three of her houses to me and my sister. Since about 15 years ago I have been adding to my collection, and have a blog about it at

Hi Rebecca it has been a while. I have emailed you recently as to selling my Geebee cottage. I wonder if you can help me at all. Hope all is good with you. Nice to be back as testing busy times have been.

Thanks Rebecca, yes! Very disappointing especially as I did ask in advance then as it turned out no sale and money refunded. I suspect that there were other reasons, perhaps more money was offered and they couldn't resist. I haven't found the same ones but will be patient. For now a very sweet cottage is on its way to me, or at least, I trust it is. :)

Hi Rebecca, thank you for your kind welcome, I really don't do very much with my dolls house hobby these days, I am not as dedicated as my lovely Sister Maddy, who is very talented. I WILLtry and take some photos for you though. I still enjoy looking at my room boxes. Thank you again for your lovely site.

Hi Rebecca, Not a problem. Being a new member I was not sure what the Category was for. I just found that "Woodcraft Construction" name on the box and was going to change it, but found that you had done so already. Like the site.

Hi Rebecca, thank you, & Julie, for emailing & uploading my photos. I'm so pleased to be able to be on the site. I've just been looking at your blog. I love your houses and interiors! The cardboard house is an odd one, but I love it. I can see dolls houses taking over my life if I'm not careful, lol.

Hello Rebecca, I was really pleased to receive your message. I definitely agree with you about the lilac paint and am positive Emma is going to remove that. I believe she is looking into how to try and remove it with out damaging the door. Any ideas you have will be useful. It is lovely to see the house again It has only recently come back to me owing to one of my older sisters having no space for it now. It's also pleasing to see Emma getting excited about restoring it and how we both are finding out about its history.
Was your Mothers name Jennifer, but she called herself Jennie, that's what I do lol.
Have a good evening and hopefully we will chat again soon Jennie

Thanks for that information about my doll's house. I must now do some detective work to identify the doll's house I had as a child.

Hi Rebecca
I have another dolls house that I would like to put on this site. Its 24th scale and I know the makers name. Should I put it in a certain category or a new one with the makers name?

Rebecca struggling to send a message keep getting timed out/prob with security code, re the leather doll picture there is an article in IDHN summer 1976 this might be the article you were thinking about I woke up last night with the idea in my head too. Hope you haven't had this message 3 different ways!

Hi Rebecca! I wondered if you could give me your thoughts on my dolls house. Do you reckon it could be a Handicrafts? I read your interesting article about Handicrafts houses a while back, and I was really struck by the similarities between the RTA 164 and my house - the round window, shape of the window surrounds, and the covered veranda and pillars. However, mine seems to have been scratch built, or made from plans, because it has quirks! I would love to hear what you think!
