Dolls Houses and Miniatures

The interiors can be just as important and Houses with original papers and furniture will always sell for a premium although the greatest enjoyment with collectors can be the search for miniature furniture, ornaments and dolls house dolls to fill your house, the most popular and well know dolls house furniture is that produced in Waltershausen, Thuringia, German during the 19th century together with other German miniature furniture makers the range of styles and sizes available was endless.  Important English Dolls House furniture by Evans & Cartwright and German tinplate furniture by Rock & Greiner dating to the mid 19th century constantly sell well at auction.
