Dolls' Houses Past & Present

A website and ezine about dolls' houses: antique, vintage and modern. Plus furniture and accessories.

Competition for DHPP members

The give-away in this issue has been very kindly donated by Margaret Hope. For those of you who have been waiting for a give-away in 1/16th scale, here we have a sweet little Twiggs bathroom basin, in the wonderful Twiggs eggshell blue, and a Dol-toi radio, in original packaging. 




As you can gather, sometimes I wish I could enter the competitions!

For a chance to win, answer the following questions:

1. What runs between the three floors of the Long Island dolls house?

2. What was Eric Lehman's birth name?

3. What colour did Modella introduce into their range of plastic furniture in 1968?

4. Who designed the furniture for the Bennett dolls house?

5. What did Valerie use for legs, pedestals and the head of a toy?


This competition is only open to registered members of this website, Dolls Houses Past and Present.

 For your chance to win this prize, please send your answers via the website "Contact Us " Section or by email to Rebecca at:

greenreb41 at hotmail dot com

(remove spaces and replace at with @ and dot with .)  


All correct entries will be entered into the draw and a winner will be picked at random.


Entries must be received by the closing date of  Tuesday 4th October 2011.

Good luck!

Submission Guidelines

We're always happy to receive submissions at any time for our quarterly ezine (currently published around the end of February, May, August and November each year).


Ideally, your submission will be in Word format, emailed to Rebecca at greenreb41 at hotmail dot com as an attachment. If you do not have access to Word we're also happy to receive your article in the body of your email.


If your submission includes photos the placement of the photos should be indicated within the submission like this:

This is an article about dolls houses or miniatures and here is a lovely photo to illustrate my point:

<Photo 1: Name of your photo>

Caption, if you're using one.

And then the article continues like this...

Photos should be no bigger than 500kb, if possible (most photo editing software has an option to compress photos), and sent as attachments, not embedded in your submission. Please ensure the names of your photos match the names you have provided in the body of your submission.
