1969 Lundby updated pictures

I have added new pictures to the 1969 Lundby post which is mostly furnished with Danish Sallingboe furniture.  Click on the link on the right side of the page to see all the pictures.

The chair shown is Arkitekt J. Udd, but fits so well with all the Sallingboe pieces.

1970s Lundby Dolls

I have been trying to collect all the dolls from the 1974 catalogs, and by now only a few bits of clothing are missing.


Women - Mona

Variations


These were not in the 1974 catalog, they didn't appear until 1975. They have black shoes instead of red.


Men - Robert (I'm still missing the bathrobe for number 3, he has a towel instead for now)



This one appeared in 1975




Boy - Peter

This one appeared in the 1975 catalog


 Girl - Marie (number one missing her belt)

1969 flat roof Lundby




I was telling my boyfriend that I really wasn't going to buy any more dollhouses.  I only had two on my wish list (I'm trying to limit myself by only buying 1:16/18 scale houses that have a different construction from what I have already, and they also have to be old).  As a result it would be highly unlikely that I would come across any of them, I promised.  The very next day one of the two turned up on eBay - needless to say I had to buy it!

I've decided to furnish it with mostly Sallingboe furniture, plus a few added Lundby pieces. Dolls are Jenny's Home.









 Chair was a lucky find by Arkitekt J. Udd

 This set doesn't feel like Sallingboe quality, but they are fine for rooftop garden furniture.

1975 Lisa of Denmark




I already had an 80s version of this house, but I found the wallpapers a bit dull, so when this appeared on eBay, I couldn't resist, and even better, two extension floors came up for sale as well!

Almost all the furniture and almost all the lamps in this house is original Lisa of Denmark.  All the accessories are picked up here and there.  Feel free to ask if you have any questions!




















 
Men trying to slice a cake 😉 



The bar stools are not original, they have been elusive/too expensive, so I decided to make my own.

The birds are a Fimo copy I made of the ones I had as a child - they are called Busy Birdie and were designed by Hans Gustav Ehrenreich.  They are a kind of mobile hanging from a spring, so they bounce up and down when touched.


Not much Lisa in the garage - it's just a fun little project where I'm trying to recreate a messy storage space since there never was a Lisa car.
