Woo Hoo!! I finally found a vintage Lundby house. I have always waned one.
(Note: the pictures here have mid-century hard plastic furniture instead of the lovely original Lundby pieces that came with the house. Everything needed a good cleaning, but I had some fun re-decorating and taking pictures before I did that. I will do a later post with the real furniture.)
It just goes to show that it pays to be nice and chatty. I bought a little clock from one of the dealers at the St. Lawrence Antique Market one Sunday and as he wrapped it up I mentioned that it was for my dollhouse. He replied that he hadn't put it in his dollhouse because it was too big.
Of course that started the conversation and the following Sunday I arrived at his table to find this wonderful 1969/1970 version of the famous Lundby house complete with original furniture and seven working lights (as I mention above - those pictures are to come once I scrub a few decades of dust off everything.).
I am now the proud owner of this little piece of dollhouse history. It needs a little TLC, but I think it is gorgeous! Enjoy the pictures. The furniture is Marx, Reliable, Renwal, Kleeware, Ideal, etc. and I think it looks great in this house.
