LILLIPUT LANE COTTAGE PAINT CHANGE CHART 1990
PAINT VERSIONS OF THE KENTISH OAST HOUSE,
TOP LEFT Version 1985-1, Single point plastic sails, very deep dull colours, would suggest pre 1985 paints, 500 grams.
TOP RIGHT Version 1985-1, Single point plastic sails, less dull slightly brighter paints, which experience suggests are post 1985 paints. 441 grams.
BOTTOM LEFT Version 1985-2, Double point metal sails, dull paints, would suggest pre 1985 paints, 489 grams.
BOTTOM CENTRE Version 1985-2, Double point metal sails, less dull slightly brighter paints, which experience suggest are post 1985 paints, 474 grams.
BOTTOM RIGHT Version 1985-2C1, Double point metal sails, bright vibrant paints, which experience suggest are post 1990 paints, 491 grams.
As we all know the pocket guide shows three versions of this piece, however I would suggest, that there are many as five, all of which have the 1985 back stamp. These include two with single point sails, but showing distinctive paint change related to pre 1985 and post 1985. Turning now to the double pointed metal sail, I suggest that whilst the Pocket guide shows only two, clearly the picture above shows three paint versions, for the pre and post 1985 paints and finally in the post 1990 paints and therefore I conclude that there are three double point versions. It must be stated at this point, that this is my own research findings and will have absolutely no reflection on the value of your pieces.
The variations on this piece are clearly visible from the front elevation and therefore the other elevations are not shown, the usual labels are seen on this piece, brown, as such does not merit illustration.
