Vintage Doll Kitchen Cupboard Featured At Silk City Antiques in Manchester, CT

Collecting Doll Cupboards Is Not Just Child's Play

I have walked by this amazing Depression era green and cream doll's cupboard several times and each time I want to bring it home with me. In fact as I am writing this post I am considering calling up the owners of Silk City Antiques in Manchester, CT and sealing up the deal.

Vintage Scottie Dog Shelf Liners

I'm melting over the vintage shelf liner that has been placed inside the play cupboard.

I'm guessing the cupboard is from the late 1930s or 1940s from the look of the colors and patterns of the cupboard and liners.

Handmade Potholders Look So Sweet Hanging On The Doll kitchen Cupboard Door

And look at the bottom doors with the vintage handmade potholders? This doll cabinet is a bit larger than some of the ones I have for sale in my shop. Perhaps that is why I like it so much. There is so much room to display other collectibles or to keep doll related kitchen items.

Up until now, I was in love with the red and white doll kitchen cupboard I bought recently which is currently on display at my shop Kitsch n Stuff ( The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, CT). But now this charming cream and green cupboard is by far my favorite.

  1. Hey Diane,

    What's the price on that wonderful piece? I'm sure I can't afford it, but I'd still like to know. My mom has a lot of green pressed glass toy dishes, and toy kitchen tools which would look awesome displayed in this cupboard.


  2. Hi Diane,
    I hope you have decided on purchasing the cupboard. It is absolutly adorable! I love, love the color and the shelf liner is too cute! Not to mention the glass handles.
    Hope you are enjoying the New Year!

  3. Hi Dianne!
    What a great cupboard. And, I love the post before about the 60-70's items. What a blast from the past!
