This is the Lundby Family who live in my house.
This is a picture of one of the dolls, showing the joints in the legs, making it easy to pose them. She has joints at the knee and top of the leg. Her arms move up and down from the shoulder and her head turns. Because of the size of her shoes she stands alone easily. I have some old rubber Lundby figures, they have wire running through them, so they can be posed. How things have changed.

Useful Lundby Sites
‘This website describes a piece of Scandinavian design history in miniature, namely Sweden´s unique production of dollhouses, dollhouse furniture and interior furnishings in modern style, which has achieved worldwide renown and prized both by collectors and by Children at play in many countries.’ There is a great selection of catalogues you can download, including Lundby and Caroline’s Home.
‘Barton began making dolls house furniture just after the 2nd World War in 1945 as a way of giving employment to demobbed British soldiers. At this time toy houses made from sheet metal by companies such as Tri-ang and Gee-Bees started to mass produced. The doll’s house became the must have toy for every little girl in Britain, and she needed to furnish it.’ If you go to the gallery on this site there are catalogues you can download from various years from 1970.
For pure inspiration visit the Official Lundby Site, it is full of useful information. The design of the website is as stylish and modern as the furniture and houses they sell, a must visit.
