An immaculate "as new" set of six rooms' of Kleeware dollhouse furniture, with their original (somewhat flimsy) card boxes, as supplied with Mettoy's tinplate dollhouse.

We acquired these six sets with our Mettoy Metal Dollhouse, with the furniture still packed in what seemed to be the original factory tissue-paper. The thin brown card boxes are very flimsy, presumably because, as the furniture was being supplied in the same package as the dollhouse, the boxes would be opened once and immediately thrown away, and didn't have to be able to cope with the sort of handling required if they were sold individually through a shop – they didn't need to withstand handling and stacking. Its not likely that many of these original boxes will have survived.
