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.

Construction

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.
