A tiny cream plastic Platelayer's hut, Hornby Dublo 5040. The hut has green windows with open shutters, a green side-door, and a grey roof with a very small corner-chimney.

There's a second example on Shelf 8 (Hornby Wall, right-hand recess), but this one is closer to the glass and easier to see.

1963: this catalogue image suggests that the piece may have had a redesign since 1959 – it now looks taller, with different roof detailing
