Here are six of eight postcards in Tuck's Set 4 of The Queen's Dolls' House postcards. Each card bears a vignette of historical information about the furniture or room depicted on the front. If you would like the missing two to complete the set, I'm happy to go on a treasure hunt in your behalf. As it is, the six cards here are in excellent unused condition. From my online research, I found that the few postcards in this series that had actually been mailed were dated 1924 and 1925. This is because these cards were originally produced for the British Empire Exhibition of 1924. After the exhibition, Tuck's continued to offer the card sets and there were multiple printings, some with errors and differences in type for the line 'Published at the British Empire Exhibition by the Fleetway Press Ltd.' (Thanks to Bill Tonkin for this information.) So while I can't be 100 percent positive, based on the condition of the envelope packaging and compared to the other set, I still think these cards are circa 1920s, if not for the Exhibition, then shortly thereafter. With this set, the envelope packaging has fared better; it is still intact.

Each card is 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
