A royal Lundby treasure!
Dollhouse collector Colleen from Canada was extremely fortunate to find a Queen’s Silver Jubilee Royal Lounge set—complete and mint in the box! Lundby produced this set in very limited quantities in celebration of British Queen Elizabeth’s 25th year of accession to the throne in 1977.
As far as I can tell, this set is not shown in any Lundby catalogue. It’s one of those extremely elusive and rare items that most Lundby collectors can only dream of laying their hands on.
The set includes a sofa, a coffee table, and two arm chairs:
All are marked with the Silver Jubilee logo. Here’s a look at the official logo:
The set also includes a gold-framed portrait of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip:
Colleen found the set in the antique shop of a friend who thought it would sell during the Queen’s Golden Jubilee this year. Colleen almost left the store without the set but decided to treat herself for her birthday.
A collector of mostly 1:12 scale dollhouses and furniture, Colleen says she has always been attracted to high quality miniatures. She adds the Royal Jubliee lounge to one other Lundby set she found at a yard sale. Now she’s interested in acquiring and furnishing a Lundby dollhouse.
Happy birthday, Colleen, and best wishes for many more happy years…of collecting Lundby!
