Triang Spot On furniture was produced in 1960. The style of this furniture being the late 1950’s The furniture made from moulded plastic and metal. It was sold in individual boxes, with the ‘Triang’ and ‘Spot On’ Logos, on a pink and cream box. The Range also included ‘Dollies Home’ introduced in 1962, which consisted mainly of room sets. The boxes they were sold in were printed to represent the room, kitchen, bedroom etc. The ‘Triang’, ‘Spot On’ and ‘Dollies Home’ range continued until 1964.
As fashion and style move on so did Triang and in 1964, they launched a new range of furniture in collaboration with ‘Homes and Gardens’ magazine. This co-insided with the introduction of the ‘Jenny’s Home ‘ Room Boxes, many of them came ready furnished and could be joined together. Much of the furniture of the ‘Triang’ ‘ Spot On Range’, either changed in style or bright modern colours. Being made now completely of plastic, with the removal of the metal fittings. The packaging also changed with a move away from pink to blue, yellow, red and orange. With a smart new logo in a red and pink heart, with Jenny’s Home in the middle, and the words ‘the home that g-r-o-w-s around it. Individual items and small room sets, now on blister pack cards and room sets in plastic covered square flat boxes.

CYLINDER HOOVER 1044
The hose is missing from my Hoover, along with a little attachment, I must look online and see if Hoover supply spare parts.

Wall to wall carpets in soft colours and deep luxurious pile; gleaming tiled linoleum for a work-a-day surfaces, and the enchantment of daintily-patterned wallpapers, magically effective and surprisingly inexpensive.
FILING CABINET 1158
Although this Filing Cabinet  is not actually an Accessory, I was not sure where to put it.
I managed to take this picture, so it looks as if the lady is taking files from the cabinet.
The Filing Cabinet is one of the few items that is labeled with the Triang name.
Wall Covering Carpets and Lino. Another wonderful Tri-ang idea. Beautify your Doll’s House with this delightful range of contemporary floor and wall coverings. Self adhesive backed, they can be cut to size and prressed into position. Size of sheets 12″ x 3″.
CARPENTER BENCH AND TOOLS 1049
It comes with a fretsaw, hacksaw, tenon saw, chisel and plane. They are made of plastic which has been painted silver to represent the metal on the tools. They are so tiny it is a wonder they have not been lost over the years.
The black part of the workbench is metal, the rest is made of plastic. There is a little shelf underneath which can be removed.
The workbench has a vice attached to the top, it actually works by turning the little metal screw.
This is another piece of furniture which shows who it is made by, not many pieces of furniture are labeled.
DOG IN BASKET 1135
The first Triang dog was white with black ears, and as stated on the box, came with a bone and bowl.
The Spaniel, in its basket , was available until around 1968. It was replaced with a white poodle on its hind legs, but only came with Jenny Home sets JH45 and 50, not sold separately.
WORKBENCH AND TOOLS 1049
EAVENSTAFF MINI ROYAL PIANO 1045
Triang produced a piano for the musically inclined residents of the Triang dolls house. The style is taken from the Eavestaff Mini Royal Piano, and Stool produced in the 1960’s.
The Eavestaff Mini Royal Piano, was one of the first piano manufacturers who designed a piano that would fit into the smaller modern homes.
This is probably a later model of the piano, as it is made of two different coloured shades of brown. It still has its little golden pedals intact
The seat of the piano stool lifts up, to store your sheet music in.
The lid covering the piano keys lifts up, and tucks neatly under the top lid.
When the top lid is opened the strings of the piano can be seen.
Top view looking down into the piano, there is quite a lot of detail inside.
On the inside of the piano lid is enbossed with the makers name Eavestaff.
This is another one of the few furiture items that are marked as being made by Tri-ang.
UMBRELLA STAND 1135
The original Umbrella Stand was blue, and came in a box with a walking stick and umbrella.
TRAY, GOBLETS AND DISH
As you can see from the picture above, some of the metallic paint has come off the stand. The stand was only available in a set in the Jenny’s Home Range [JH 43]
This is a lovely set of silver items, some are listed as single items, but appeared in various combinations in Jenny’s Home Sets.
Triang Luggage 1142/1157, it consists of a Cabin Trunk, Suit Case and Hat Box.
The luggage is not quite as shown in the 1960 catalogue. This Set did continue into the Jenny’s Home range of furniture. The colour was changed though to brown with cream handles, it has always been sold as a group of three items.
The little handle on the Suitcase and Hot Box move,
The Luggage Set has a tendency to warp, but they look ok from the front.
This picture shows the inside of the suitcase. There is a piece of silver painted plastic which has a fitting for the handle and the little claps lock. For the size of this luggage the detail is very good, and not something you expect in a Triang piece.
For the ‘Do it yourself’ enthusiast, we have a wide range of dolls’ house fittings. All frames are of moulded plastic, whilst windows are fitted with transparent plastic ‘panes’ and opening doors with hinges.
