A white 1:16-scale dollhouse lithographed printed tinplate Cupboard (for brooms, carpet sweepers, etc) with black and red lining, and with a large plastic handle on its opening metal door, distributed by Wells-Brimtoy.

The cupboard might be a later sixth member of the My Dolly's Kitchen Series, although the boxes we've seen for the official range only mention five pieces -- its lining matches the other members of the range, although its colour is closer to a "proper" white than the "offwhite" colour used by the other pieces.
