1930s Triang Doll's House

The main body is constructed from wood, and the all metal front is hinged, and opens up to reveal four rooms inside: one room has a tiled floor, and the upper floor rooms are wallpapered with a dado paper border detail. There is a sun dial above the wooden front door, and the grid style cottage windows are painted pale green. All external paint is original and with maker's name:"Triang, L Bros Ltd London England".
