Frontier Kitchen (SOLD)

Details of each item

STOVE/COOKER: Fantastically sturdy, painted metal, old-fashioned range, with beautifully-crafted, hinged doors, and a top shelf to hold kitchen paraphernalia. On the cooker sit suitably rustic, vintage items: a metal casserole with lid, a big metal kettle with a raffia-wound handle, a sack of flour with wooden scoop, and a metal spatula. On the shelf above are: a scrub brush and bar of soap, metal pan, earthenware jug, and a hand-painted china milk jug. There's also a basket of logs nearby to "fire-up" the stove.

TABLE AND CHAIRS: A lovely, primitive wooden table and chair, both stained dark, plus a paler, yet still rustic, second wooden chair with a real caned seat. On the table sit a vintage china platter for the cheese, a vintage metal dish to hold the simple, metal cutlery, four white china mugs and plates, plus another pressed metal dish to hold the wholemeal bread.

SHELF: Mounted on the wall with Velcro tabs is a simple wooden shelf which holds a vintage metal tray or baking pan. Tiny cup hooks hold a fabric pot-holder and am amazing little brass lantern.

WALLS: Covered in vintage-style, Italian wrapping papers, which have been mounted on two pieces of 5mm thick, A3 foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42 x 29.5cm or 11 5/8 x 16 3/8 in.

DOLL: Available from our selection of vintage dolls. Please see the relevant section of our website for a larger choice. Shown here are a “modern” brunette Ginny with long, plaited hair, dressed in a lovely, cotton, flower-sprigged dress and white tights – the outfit is completed by a charming straw hat on the chair. If you would like this particular doll in these clothes, please contact us for a price.
