From tiny chandeliers to miniature chairs, beds and curtains, her lifelong collection of dolls houses then grew to around 30 different properties. And now tomorrow they will go up for sale. Related content As well as the houses, the sale will include hundreds of items of furniture.

Can you name other makes? How many makes of vintage prams can you remember? Each pram collector seems to have their own particular favourite make. This often depends on where you lived because in the area where prams were made it was generally found that parents would favour their local brands and support local industry. Pram shops had to have permission from the manufacturer to sell their prams so this also affected choice available.
Tri-ang’s degree of organisation in numbering their houses makes it easier for enthusiast groups to share information on specific models, and the sheer number of dollhouse models that Triang put out means that once you’re bought one old Tri-ang dollhouse, it’s awfully tempting to start collecting more.
Friday, March 13, Homemade Australian – Californian Bungalow style house, late s Here is another of my homemade Australian dolls houses. Like the Federation bungalow, this one also comes from Sydney, probably from the Centennial Park area. I loved the front of the house when I saw it on ebay: I love the pylon-shaped window frames and door frame – wider at the bottom, narrower at the top.
This shaping of exterior and interior timbers is typical of the very common architectural style known in Australia as ‘Californian Bungalow’, which was imported from California in Other features of this style are diamond-paned leadlight casement windows, and porthole windows in the front door in real houses, usually filled with a stained glass design of an Australian native bird or animal. This house is definitely not a bungalow, and it doesn’t show as many features of this style as the Californian-bungalow style house in Dolls’ Houses in Australia But I think that the maker of this house definitely had this style in mind – and the white picket fence is so typical of Australian towns and suburbs.
The exterior has been repainted – perhaps fairly recently. The original colouring can be seen in places – creamy yellow on the walls, with grey trim very similar to the Federation bungalow in reverse. The interior is much plainer. When I bought it, it had wall and floor coverings dating to the s: The wallpaper in particular was falling off the walls.

Bill Hall is a collector. He’s also a scientist now retired from the lab. On this program, he has in the past, discussed collecting everything from cards, glass, tickets, even sick bags from airlines. But today it’s toys; many of those we took for granted as kids, may in , be worth oodles. Whenever I see a Dinky toy my eyes start to water. It’s not just the childhood memory, although Dinky toys have an important part to play in that; it’s the thought that I didn’t keep my collection.
Why didn’t someone tell me, when I was nine years old, to hold on to my investment? No-one spoke to me about the futures market in those days. Perhaps the market economy hadn’t embraced second-hand toys when I was a boy? Toys were merely objects to play with. Dinky toys are just one example of the huge, world-wide interest in toy collecting, toys that are kept and conserved because they are better than money in the bank.
A collection of just a few rare toys may be worth over one-million dollars. I want to trace the past years of toy-making, including the impact of technological change on toys, and the materials that have been used to make them. And I want to give a few hints on toy collectability.

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.

Well what a busy and exciting day it’s been on the dolls’ house front today! Starting with the busy bit, I spent the whole morning examining, comparing, measuring and photographing Grecon feet until I was almost cross-eyed! I’m still working on the ‘ About Grecon Dolls ‘ page of my Grecondale blog site and the section on feet is proving to be never-ending.
My aim is to identify and document all of the different foot shapes in my collection and then to attempt to date them as accurately I can, based on any and all information I can lay my hands on. So far I’ve identified seven different adult foot shapes and I still have the children and toddlers to go. I’ll get there eventually, I’m sure. And now for the exciting bit This model, with the stucco front downstairs and the brick-paper upstairs is dated to between by Marion Osborne The Book of Tri-ang Dolls’ Houses to The inside is all original.
It is missing its range in the downstairs room but I have a replacement one winging or more likely chugging its way to me as we speak. It did have glass in the windows but the upstairs pane didn’t survive the journey, despite very careful packaging by the seller. My local picture framer will cut me a new piece and charge next to nothing so it’s not a problem. In the meantime, I’ve removed the downstairs panes too, until I can get them all in and secured at the same time.
As is so often the case, the outside had had a couple of makeovers in its time, but the seller I bought it from has carefully and sympathetically restored it back to as near original condition as possible.

A dolls house is a house made in miniature and the first one made was in Germany in For thousands of years miniature homes have been made and furnished with people, furniture, animals and household items. Dating back to the egyptian tombs nearly five thousand years ago remains of pottery and wooden dolls have been found and they are believed to be for religious purposes not as toys. The earliest dolls houses date back to the Sixteenth Century where cabinets were made to display the rooms.

The use of these titles and the heraldry associated with them is governed by various rules. The Prince is also one of three members of the Royal Family able to grant Royal Warrants of appointment to companies. In addition to the feathers, The Prince has a coat of arms with long historical links with the heraldry of his ancestors. The Prince also has three standards: These were designed by the Canadian Government to further strengthen the links between Canada and the Crown.
Other titles have been inherited in the same way but are not actively used, such as the Earl of Carrick. The badge of The Prince of Wales comprises three silver or white feathers rising through a gold coronet of alternate crosses and fleur-de-lys. The motto “Ich Dien” I serve is on a dark blue ribbon beneath the coronet. Experts in heraldry believe the three ostrich feather badge and Ich Dien motto may have been adopted by the then Prince of Wales the Black Prince following the Battle of Crecy in having been used by the defeated King John of Bohemia, but feathers also formed part of the Arms of the family of Edward’s mother, Philippa of Hainault.
The rules of heraldry allow limited variations in the depiction of the badge. The spines or quills of the feathers can be of gold, instead of white or silver, and the coronet – usually studded with emeralds and rubies – can also feature small sapphires. The arrangement of the motto ribbon can vary, but is usually shown in front of the two outer feathers and behind the centre one. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall wave from the platform in York at a ceremony to name the new Peppercorn class A1 steam locomotive, the Tornado.
