A beautifully detailed folding room that was created in the French taste, it was surely inspired by the nineteenth-century antique originals. This piece is as miraculous as those, perhaps even more so, as this room and its contents is a modern creation - well, fairly modern, as it dates circa 1980s we would fathom to guess.
Created by an extremely talented artisan, the scroll cut wooden furniture was beautifully constructed, and then decorated with Dresden paper ornaments, gilded paint decoration and in this case exquisite petit point tapestry.
Included in this sumptuous room, which we like to refer to as a library, is a salon suite comprised of a settee, two arm chairs and matching footstools, an overscale center table, a gorgeous chaise lounge, a secretary bookcase, an impressive sideboard, two console tables, two pedestals, an occasional table and a lovely harp. Of special note, besides the exquisite whatnot upon the back wall, are the two niches that contain bisque busts, plus the built in shelving housing beautifully decorated books.
There is plenty of opportunity to add your personal touch to the room in the form of dolls and even more accessories.

What one notices about this four-room open dollhouse, besides the rich patina of the natural wood construction, is its originality. The four rooms each feature very attractive wall papers, three rooms feature wonderful gilt metal cornices, and the lower rooms feature "scored" floors which emulate planks. A similar method was utilized on the roof to emulate shingles. Another interesting feature of the house is that is it assembled in pieces, meaning that it is stackable - each floor is a separate component, as is the roof structure. The handsome balustraded "porch" is a separate piece as well.
The house is electrified and ready for furnishings - the fun part!

Wooden kitchens such as this were offered in French etrennes catalogs for decades
What can we say? We're smitten with kitchens of all varieties, and this chock full charmer is no exception.
Details include original paint upon the wooden frame, a cook stove with two burners that is covered in printed brick paper, plus a sink that drains into a painted bucket (loss to spigot), plus a wonderful assortment of kitchen implements in blue and white porcelain, enamelware and copper.
You could showcase this fun piece with your dolls wearing French or German regional costumes - what a great vignette you will create!

Thank you, K.







This petite French Room Box is just wonderful - we especially love the soft palette incorporated.
The darling boudoir includes a scroll cut, paper-covered bed with the original lace draperies, plus a night table, dressing table, mirrored armoire, and a comfy chair - all in good condition.
A very cheerful room, it will not take up much display space, plus, it will arrive with the sweet German all bisque doll shown here.

Measures: 17 1/2" wide x 8 1/4" deep x 8 1/4" tall

Thank you C.








Moritz Gottschalk Railway Station

Here's an unusual find, a Moritz Gottschalk red-roof "Bahnhof" or railway station, circa 1910. In good original condition overall, the station features two rooms, on the left a ticket office and on the right a telegraph office - a waiting area fills the center. This will be a fun piece to outfit with dollhouse doll passengers, benches, miniature luggage, et cetera.
All aboard!

The Farm

The Farm is a sweet slice of folk art...and as American as apple pie.
Created by W.C. Martin from wooden items on hand at the time, such as cigar boxes, fruit crates and various packing boxes, the workmanship is well thought out and charming. The farmhouse itself was built from a dynamite box, as the reverse reads: "HIGH EXPLOSIVES-DANGEROUS"! The roof of the house lifts off for access. The two-seater outhouse was made from from cigar boxes, complete with wonderful reading material on the walls! Plus, there's a bell, a bench, two garden urns, a flag and a glider for the lawn.
Outbuildings include a garage, a gazebo, a marvelous two-story barn with a cupola and lightning rod, a chicken coop and a lath house where the hogs are fed and ears of corn are stored.
Farm implements include a plow, a pump and trough, a wonderful blue wagon, a cauldron and a sharpening wheel. There is also a windmill that isn't shown here.
Livestock includes horses, two kinds of pigs and chickens galore!
Don't miss the haystack!

It appears that two generations contributed to the assembling of the farm, as one piece is dated 1911 and another 1931, or it is possible that it was dated when it was passed down in the Martin family. Regardless, paint details are harmonious, as is the patina of the entire work.
All in all, a heart warming toy with abundant American charm.
Farmhouse measures: 22" T x 19" L x 17" D








Darling German wooden Gazebo in a nice scale, bearing original cream paint and climbing flowers, circa 1910-1920. The scroll cut table is an addition, but works quite well. In very good condition overall.

Moritz Gottschalk Dollhouse, a darling red-roof model circa 1924, featuring a two-story interior, complete with wall and floor papers, and lace curtains that all remain in exceptional condition.

Access to the second floor can be found through the hatch that is disguised by the top tier of the porch. Chimneys are excellent replacements.
Just add appropriately scaled furnishings and dolls and you will have a petite dollhouse of which you can be very proud.
