Tri-ang Lines Bros. Ltd. ca. 1937 Wooden Electric No. 61 Dollhouse for Sale


Tri-Ang Lines Bros. Ltd. ca. 1937 Wooden Electric No. 61 Dollhouse

We have for you a ca. 1937 wooden electric no. 61 dollhouse that was manufactured by Lines Bros. Ltd. of London, England.

So, she’s a fixer-upper, but as we understand it in the world of dollhouses these houses are highly sought after for hobbyists to restore. The catalog describes this no. 61 dollhouse as, “A larger house with built-in garage, two large rooms (with electric wall lights), metal framed windows, tiled sun-porch, steps, and dummy shrubs. Grey-tiled roof. Now greatly improved with addition of window box.” As you can see from the pictures she’s missing some things and other things aren’t in the best shape, but she has great bones. We did not test the electrical, but all of the accouterments for it are there for it.

This piece is in fair to good all original condition with no restorations, repairs, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. This is approximately 19 L x 10 ½” L x 16 ½” H. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.



A brief history of G&L Lines and Tri-ang Lines Bros. Ltd. of London, England:

1919 – 1971

Founder: George and Joseph Lines and later Arthur Lines (Tri-ang 1931)

Specialty: In about 1927, the Lines Brothers produced wooden toys marked “Triangtois”. The company produced small, clockwork, tin, motor toys; the “Minic” series, in the 1930s. George and Joseph Lines produced very early wooden dollhouses before their brother Arthur joined and they made the separate company of Tri-ang Lines Bros. Ltd. absorbing the G & L Lines. Their newly formed company was one of the biggest manufacturers of dollhouses sold throughout Britain in the 1930s and 1950s. In 1959, they produced the “Spot-On” series of die-cast models. The Lines Brother’s company eventually closed its doors in 1971 following financial difficulties.
