Some years ago I aquired an old dolls house built in about 1936 by a man for his daughter.
With the house came two very old and tatty little suitcases and a grubby little black box with a label; Mickey Mouse Nursery Set: Lines Bros Ltd Tri-ang Works
Where on earth was I going to put this huge, dilapidated old dolls house.
Whatever would I find in these equally old cases which apparently had been stored away in the garage for 40 odd years…?
I put an old blanket on the dining room table, took a deep breath and opened the cases. Every item had been carefully wrapped up in tissue paper and as I opened each little parcel I discovered the most beautiful vintage miniatures imaginable.
It was like Christmas….!!! Only better…!!! A Fairy Tale come true…!!!
