This morning I received my latest dolls house. Actually I won it on Australian ebay in February, but it took a while to make the journey north.
There's a little bit of work to do, I think! All of that white enamel paint has to come off, and the olive green trim.
The inside is also solid white:
Someone had added a partition in the middle of each room - I've already removed them, as I'd prefer to have the original two large rooms. Removing them has revealed remnants of the original parquet floorpapers:
which I may be able to replace. I'll see if there's any wallpaper hiding under the paint, but I think not - so will find some vintage wallpapers to paper the rooms with.
Unfortunately there's no glass in any of the windows - but the window frames are there, and they are harder to replace. There is a front door - a bonus, as my Triang 52 is missing its front door. Also, it came with an original kitchen range -
- if that was mentioned in the auction, I'd forgotten about it.
If anyone knows what this should look like (colour of the front door, gable timbers, roof, etc), I'd love to hear, as I haven't seen a colour photo of one of these!
