Maybe I am dreaming. It certainly seems like it. I recently stumbled across an estate auction that offered unexpected, actually undreamed of, treasures. There were several lots of dollhouse items. I will share all of them with you sooner or later, but today I want to show you the Golden Oak lot.
I brought my antique dollhouse in from the garage and cleaned it up so I could showcase my unbelievable find. This furniture is from 1900-1910
The bed, complete with mattress, pillow, 2 sheets and a coverlet. was one of the auction lots. It is in perfect condition.
The server/buffet has a marble top and candle shelves.
The four chairs have original woven seats. The candelabra in the middle of the table has a paper label that says "Made in Germany" and is blown glass from the same period as the furniture.
The pigeon holes on the top of the desk also have two drawers. Perhaps there were four at one time. I don't know.
It has six soft metal hooks, a mirror and a drawer. The glue had dried out on several of the pieces and this was no exception. I had to glue the mirror back in and the cornice back on top.
I feel very lucky that the pieces were all in the box.
The clock on the metal Stevens table in the background is also a piece I couldn't find any references to. It is gorgeous!
The cornice seems to be broken off. This is the only item in the box of goodies that has missing pieces. The clock has a mirror behind the pendulum and glass on all three sides. The clock and pendulum seem to be the same soft metal as the knobs and hooks on the other pieces.
