The lithographed house is 11 1/2 inches tall,
with a typical two-room interior.
It still has all of its original wall and floor papers.
The French-made metal furniture, dating from the 1920s, is in a small, mostly 1/2 inch scale, and includes a table, chair, bench, dressing table with gilt mirror, sewing machine, and two twin beds. The German tin fireplace, from the late 1900s-early '20s, still has its red foil "fire." A Cracker Jack prize clock rests on the mantle.
The beautiful baby carriage, another of the French penny toy pieces, holds a Frozen Charlotte doll.
That furniture is wonderful, and built to last for generations. It reminds me of the great chairs that are available in the Paris parks.ReplyDelete
