"Father Christmas" brought me this house when I was 6. I am now 66 and just as hooked on dolls houses and miniatures as I was then. I have about 20 houses and they are all in different stages - some almost done, others in desperate need of TLC The oldest is a tiny blue roof Gottschalk, the newest one a 1973 Lundby. I love them all, and I am thrilled to find this site, and so many other enthusiasts. I am very lucky as my husband is enthusiastic too, AND he can saw straight. The photo of the man sitting outside the front door, elsewhere on the photo gallery, was made for me by my son when he was 6. I didn'thave a "man" doll ( they were hard to find in 1951) so Mr Manda was away at sea. Bob came home, clutching this doll for me, and so Mr Manda is retired now, and nurses his baby grandaughter.
