Antique Handmade Victorian Dollhouse FURNISHED.
Truly A One-Of-A-Kind.
This doll house originated in the 1880s in Maine, acquired from an elderly lady who was a granddaughter of the original owner. Many of the furnishings are handmade - they range from late Victorian to the 1950s. In addition to what is in the house, there is more in the drawer.
Authenticity is the key word when referring to this dollhouse - from the miniature tintype pictures, hand-loom carpets, ornate chandeliers to candleholders with wax candles -this Dollhouse is unbelievable.
There is enough furniture for 2 different groupings for each room. The extras are stored in the ample drawer.
(See photograph below)
Most pieces of furniture are made to represent the period of this wonderful dollhouse and include handmade wooden furniture as well as metal. They are ornate and very intricate in design - couches are padded and upholstered with real material, wood table set with inlaid pieces.
Other accents include 3 chandeliers (2 candle/1 with globes).
