A Vintage Collection

This Site contains slideshows of various vintage dolls  house furniture, as listed in the menu above. It is linked to my main site SHED ON THE POND.

I have been collecting Triang furniture for some time now, it has become quite difficult now to find the smaller and more unusual items.  Jenny’s Home furniture also forms part of my collection. It is interesting to see how the furniture had evolved over the years. Carolines Home by AB Barton is also furniture that I collect, concentrating on the items in the 1976 catalogue.  I have included on this site many items I have come across when buying mixed lots from auction sites, many of these have been sold on, but I have kept the pictures for useful reference.

My main passion is collecting and restoring Vintage Triang Dolls Houses. Many of these dolls houses are well past there play by date, some just looking for a lick of paint and a freshen up, others had problems with wood worm and water damage. Each was a challenge and I learnt a few new skills and techniques along the way, like filling a gap made by woodworm with kitchen roll and glue, doing a bit of beam [brass] rubbing with pencil and paper. It was a bit like, make it up as I went along.
