Lighting a Triang Dolls House

Many of the Triang Dolls Houses that are fitted with electric lights, have wooden panels fitted with brass bulb holders.  These panels fit into the back of the house.  The light bulbs are linked by thin wire, and can be turned on and off,  when the metal bar on the outside of the house completes…

Spot-on Furniture List

I have listed the Triang Furniture that I have collected.  Not a very big collection at the moment, but some interesting pieces. The Triang Spot-On Furniture shown on the following pages were produced from 1960 until aproximately 1965.  They were not cheap pocket money toys and probably added to the reason for there short production period. [it was later bought…

Triang Style and Design

During the period between the World Wars, Triang produced a range of quality wooden furniture, called ‘Period Furniture’. This range has become very popular with collectors, and can be quite expensive to buy. Throughout WW2 the Triang factory at Merton made range of military hardware, including 14,000,000 magazines for Hurricane and Spitfire aircraft, as well…

Triang Spot-On Furniture Box

I have been working for a while now on reproducing Triang Furniture Boxes. I have a few, but they are very faded, and torn, but there is enough to make a good reproduction. My first effort was the Dining Room Chair Box. This box was in quite good condition, but as it was fixed along…

Christmas Crackers

Christmas Crackers are quite easy to make, the only problem I found when making them was that as they are so small, they would collapse when shaping. So as little tip I will pass onto you is to use *Extra Slim Cigarette Filters, to help keep the shape. For the outer wrapping of your Christmas…

Princess Kitchen

PRINCESS KITCHEN I have had a few thoughts about how to decorate and furnish this house. Furnishing with Triang furniture would just be impossible as the rooms are so big, and the furniture would look so small. I want to make it lived in with lots of bit and bobs around, as if someone has…

Kitchen Table [Green]

PRINCESS KITCHEN TABLE This is a table I have chosen for my Triang Princess Dolls house. It is probably not the style I would have chosen but the height against the kitchen units is about right. The table I liked was the same height as the kitchen units, but I felt that a lower one…

Pine Kitchen Floor

Kitchen Floor I was not quite sure what to use for a kitchen floor, a choice between tiles and floor boards. I tried to make kitchen floor tiles out of clay, but this was not successful at all, I just made a terrible mess. Fimo would have been better, but for such a large room…

Distressed Kitchen Base Units

KITCHEN BASE UNITS The rooms in this house are quite big, so it is not a good idea to use Triang furniture. So I am going to furnish each room in 12th scale furniture. I have various pine kitchen base units, to use in the Kitchen of my Triang Princess Doll House.   I want to make each piece individual…
