Miniature Groceries

Antique dollhouse grocery shops are some of my favorite things to collect. Most were made in Germany, from the mid 1800s all the way through the 1960s. Here are a few accessory pieces I found recently to restock my shelves.

Miniature canned goods (milk, coffee, and sausages): tin cans with paper labels, made in Germany circa the 1930s, 1 1/2 inches tall.

Tiny cheeses: cardboard, composition, and glass. Dish is 1 1/4 inches in diameter, circa 1930s.


  1. I'd like a tiny slice of that Camembert, please. It must be ripe by now.

  2. Oooooo, you're singing my song here Tracey!! These are awesome!!

  3. Tracy, Where can I find these? I want them for my granddaughter. Do you know any current toymakers who are making grocery objects in German?

    1. Sorry, I'm in America, so I don't know of any offhand. I find mine in antique shops, on ebay, etc.
