Rare Antique Dolls' House Lines Triang with antique furniture This is a big one!!! Measurements: Width (across the front, including the chimney at the side) = 57" (145 cms) Height (to the top of the tallest chimney) =48" (122 cms) Depth = 20 (51 cms) This is a wonderful, large, rare house made by Lines Bros. It was listed in their catalogue as DH/14, and was in production from 1924 - 1933.
Interestingly, Hamleys was bought by Lines in 1931. It has the original floor and wall papers. The sitting room walls look like they've had a "makeover", but could be the original paper under all that red. The floor in that room is untouched and all of the other wall and floor papers are original.
Expected wear and tear, but how wonderful to find them still there! The outside has stucco and brick paper. The outside back and side walls are finished the same as the front, because this was made as a quality house. In the back wall there are four windows plus a back door, in the kitchen, which opens.The front is double door opening, and the doors also have the original papers. All the windows have glass. Two of the back windows and one small window at the front have small pieces of the metal criss cross frames missing. There is an old switch on the side of the house which hasn't been in use for a long time. There is a lift up flap, in the roof, at the back, providing access to a working switch and battery (it needs a new one). The light shades look original, and are antique; they would benefit from all their beads cleaning. The one in the sitting room is particularly lovely. The fireplaces in the sitting room and dining room are the high "baronial" style, the kitchen has a range and there are upstairs fireplaces; all the fireplaces, except one, still have their grates. The cornicing is lovely too.
This is a very sturdy house, solidly built to last, There is a thin crack down the bathroom wall, which isn't new - nothing serious, but want to mention for accuracy, and chips off the roof finish, here and there. Before I owned it, the house was in a very large residence and all the furniture came with it. Unfortunately I need to sell due to moving. The furniture and all the bits and pieces you can see are included in the sale. The cream painted wooden furniture scattered throughout the rooms is c1920s and may have always been with this house.Lots of other antique and vintage pieces. It just needs some nice rugs. I don't know the weight, but extremely heavy. Btw, the chimneys don't lift off.
