Who collects antique and vintage Spanish dolls houses? A query from a Dolls House Past and Present member about antique Spanish dolls house furniture got me thinking about this, and I started searching ebay.es and other websites. Just in one evening I found some lovely houses - and I would love to know more about old Spanish dolls houses and their makers.
This one, called Celi, is said to be made in Dénia in the 1950s.
This one is also said to date from the 50s:
while this one, in English Victorian style, is said to date from the 30s or 40s:
The ebay seller who has listed this boxed porcelain dinner set thinks that it was made in Dénia, although the box is unmarked:
The same seller is listing a boxed set of kitchen utensils, which were apparently made in Alicante in the 1940s:
Can anyone tell us more? Was Alicante, and particularly Dénia, a centre of dolls house manufacturing? Do any of my Spanish readers own antique or vintage dolls houses or dolls house furnishings (say, from the 1950s or before)? Or do you know of other collectors, or museums, who own some? Perhaps there is already a website showing them? I would love to discover more!
