George and Joseph Lines were the most important British toy makers of the 19th century, known as the Lines Bros. They made rocking horses and other toys and by the end of the century were producing a large number of dolls' houses of different types. The earliest surviving catalogues, which date from   the early 20th century, show solid-looking town houses and mansions.

Triang No.62...This is my second restoration, and what a sad house it was, only half a roof, all the wallpaper was water damaged.  It had been over pained, with rough flowers on.  Although the window had curtains on them, most of them were rotten, and the frames rusty.  This was to be a job and a half.

Triang No.62...I am not sure how much restoration I will do on the house itself, the roof just needs repainting, and there is no sign of wood worm.  The outside paint is a bit thin and cracked, the flower painting is good, so I might approach this one in a different way.  I think I will clean it up first and see how I go from there.

I had originally bought this house to use for spares, but I fell in love with it and as the condition was quite good I have decided to keep it. It even has its door knocker and letter box on the door, also the little window next to the door.

Triang No.76...This house had been over painted on the outside, so I stripped off the old paint and repainted it, and gave it a coat of varnish to protect it.  I removed the beams and repaired the missing pieces and repainted them brown.The roof needed retaping along the joins of the roof and a coat of paint to tidy it up.It has Triang floor paper, but it is a bit worn.
