I just love push along and pull along toys especially horses, isnt the little one a darling? Mrs Henny is a bit worse for wear and does not cluck when her wheels go round any more and her wings dont flap to good but she is such a decorative little thing.
I saw this dolls bed and although it is not all original and I suspect the headboard is the base of a mirror I could not resist it and have made a mattress and pillow for it and used a piece of an antique worn out quilt as a cover that looks just right.
A wonderful dolls wedding dress on its own little hanger, lovely shiny silk with tiny pearl buttons all hand stitched.
Another great find, sold as prints these are original fashion drawings and paintings by a lady called Phyllis Russell spanning from 1900 to 1930, a very good hand did these and just wonderful that they are one offs, it would be great if some of the dresses were actually made.
This is a brilliant find. This quilt about the right size for a single bed is unfinished and I should think, just been kept folded up in a drawer till now. Its lovely just for its bright little patches but the best thing about it is on the back. The paper templates are in the main still all there and made up from what looks like very old kitchen accounts, each piece has snippets of lists for bread, milk, butter and so on. It is a real piece of social history and I am in a dilemma as to what to do with it......any suggestions?
