Even if you don’t go to an Auction or bid on line, you really must take a look at this lovely collection of Vintage Dolls Houses and Furniture. The Auction takes place on 1st December 2016, at Special Auction Services in Newbury, Berkshire. There are some great examples of houses you just don’t see come up for sale. The Period Triang furniture is wonderful to see, and has pieces I could only dream of owning.
…….. ‘The following 178 lots are the collection of the late Ron & Doreen Truin; Ron & Doreen shared many collecting interests during their 60 years together. Ron was a lifelong toy collector, retaining his childhood toys from the 1930s. His wife Doreen had an extensive collection of dolls’ houses, and whilst Ron’s main interests was always toy trains, inspired by Doreen’s enthusiasm he gathered his own collection of houses ranging from Silber & Fleming, G&J Lines, Gottschalk through to Tri-ang and Stubbs. Doreen was particularly interested in Tri-ang and G & J Lines, and acquired an extensive knowledge of these companies. It was a hobby that gave both of them a great deal of pleasure and created many friendships over the years.’ …….. [Description from The Saleroom Website]
