Antique Dollhouse revisited
I left the Schneegas dining room and bedroom furniture in place, but I added the large Schneegas desk and hall stand to the den.
The carpet is hand made petitpoint, no old, but very beautiful.
The little boy is an all bisque jointed child made in Germany. I put some hair on him today and all of a sudden he had a personality. I think he is adorable.
I was lucky enough to find a mother cat and a batch of kittens at the antique market a few weeks ago. They are all bisque and made in Germany several decades ago - possibly the 20s or 30s.
The towel rack came with the bedroom behind the bathroom. The bedroom suite has a wonderful German Wardrobe, matching bedside table and bed. All are painted white with gold trim. The chair came with this set, but seems to be a different colour.
The living room behind the den has a wonderful green velvet arm chair and matching sofa. Possibly German.
When Mother returns to the dining room she finds the fireplace tongs are still on the table. Where is that maid?
In the kitchen sister is trying to figure out what spot is begging for.
That box of antique furniture also contained the kitchen table with three chairs. The plaster sink and a wonderful matching dresser.
