Barton dollhouse furniture

1945 -     

A Barton & Co. were formed in 1945, after the end of World War Two. Although they made different ranges of toys, Barton are almost exclusively remembered as a maker of dollhouse furniture, initially marketed as the Model Home range. They were one of the best-known dollhouse furniture brands in the UK.

In the mid-1970s they launched the Caroline's Home range, and they were bought out by the Swedish company Lundby in the mid-1980s.


Barton's wooden dollhouse furniture differs from those for some other companies in being made of plywood. Although quite heavily varnished, the plywood layers are often quite easily visible on side-panels.
