I have just spent a lot of money on another dolls' house this week (which will arrive next week, I hope). So I could not bid on this, which was also on Australian ebay this week:
This is not actually a dolls' house as such, but a construction set called Bilda-Brix, by Playmate, which came with directions for some great modern designs, and all the bricks and windows and roofs etc:
I've seen other Bilda-Brix sets for more traditional designs, as well, but this one is definitely worth looking out for.
And because I've spent so much on the new house, I can't even think about asking whether I can bid on this art deco apartment building on UK ebay. Is this the exact same house which The Shopping Sherpa bid on last September? Or is there more than one? If it's not the actual house, but a duplicate, it suggests that it may have been made commercially (or possibly from a plan, although it looks identical to me, which houses built from plans rarely are).
Whether individually or commercially made, it's a terrific design, and will no doubt reach a high price again.
(This photo is from The Shopping Sherpa's blog post, as I can't work out how to save the images on the current ebay listing, in the new format. Luckily I was able to save the Bilda-Brix photos. If anyone can explain why this is so, or how to save photos from the new auction format, I'd be delighted to know.)
