The furniture and dolls consists of the following items: A purple and black cardboard box, originally containing safety matches with a label on the top with manufacturing details.

A small metal hansom cab pulled by a metal horse. This item is broken in two. A wooden and paper wall clock. The clock is paper with a gold coloured edging. The time is twenty-five past nine. The clock is fixed to a octagonal red painted piece of wood. Below the clock is a vertical piece of wood with a paper illustration of the pendulum. The clock is stuck to the acid free tissue by a sticky label on the back. A black plastic baby doll, wearing a blue lace dress with a pink ribbon waistband. She is wearing a white nappy. Three paper books with red covers. Two of the books are blank, but one has writing inside. A yellow wicker basket with a pink cotton lining. Two plastic dolls, a boy and a girl. Both have painted and moulded facial features and painted and moulded brown hair. Their arms are jointed. The boy is wearing a green felt hat with a white synthetic fabric T-shirt and black felt shorts. His shoes and socks are painted red and black. The girl doll is wearing a synthetic material dress, with white shoulder straps. Her dress is striped in red, white, blue, yellow and green. Like her brother, her shoes are painted. On her back is inscribed inside a triangle 'AR'. Total number of items is 20.
