Question Mill Cottage and Butterfly

Hi, This is my first post, although I have been buying houses from DHE for years. I have been busy collecting houses I couldn't afford when they first came out and have just managed to buy Mill Cottage. I wondered if anyone on here knows how much both Mill Cottage and Butterfly Cottage (which I also have) were when they were first made, I have an old catalogue somewhere but can't find it. Would be grateful for any info. thanks

hello Nett and welcome..
I have these two houses as well, aren't they fab.
I expect Rebecca will be along soon to answer your questions. She is a bit of a historian, when it comes to DHE houses.

And here I am!

Here is the list of most of DHE discontinued dolls houses were you get to find the information and prices at the time.

Wish-list for discontinued DHE houses!

Yep, found them.
I noticed that no 1 out of the 500 Mill Cottages has been up for sale on eBay recently!
Was Butterfly Cottage also a limited edition? If not, I wonder if you know how many were made, Rebecca?
I'm asking because I also have the Franklin Mint Rose Cottage, which is a similar design, shape and construction; and this was a limited edition of 2,500.

Butterfly Cottage was not promoted as a limited edition but it was Indeed. Unlike the Mill Cottage it was only available for less than a year and only a few hundreds were available. According to my research there were only 200 available.

I have Butterfly Cottage and I truly love it.
