|I recently found a Hall's Colonial dollhouse circa 1970.|
I love the front of the house with the impressive pillars,
the deep windows and the wide veranda.
|As I don't have any of the Hall's furniture I had fun furnishing it from|
my collection of German furniture from the 60s and 70s.
Hall's was in business, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 1942 to the late 1970's.
They made many kinds of dollhouses and doll furniture for 8-12" dolls, 3/4" scale miniature furniture and 1/12 scale furniture. The furniture was made of wood and sold in upper scale department stores.
Hall's even offered a dollhouse version of Mount Vernon, which I am sure would be much smaller than the Mount Vernon dollhouse shown in my last post.
|The appliances from "Little Mother's Kitchen" are not German. They are pink tin and|
were made in Japan in the late 1950s or early 1960s. They originally came in a
boxed set which also included a table, 2 chairs and a washing machine.
|The dining room set is plastic and was made in Germany.|
|The blue bathroom fixtures were made by Vero, a German firm, circa 1970. |
The cabinet is plastic and goes with the living room chairs. It is by Crailsheim.
There wasn't room for it in the living room, so now it holds towels and toiletries.
|The bedroom set is also German, possibly Bodo Hennig, and from the 50s or 60s. It is made of wood.|
|The wicker baby bed has a Caco baby in it and is from that company.|
|The house has 4 rooms and an attic. The attic is very low ceilinged, but good for storage.|
