This is a well loved circa 1914-1918 American made Converse one room bungalow wooden doll house. This small (13 inches high) house was made in the USA by Converse Company of Massachusetts. It is very similar to those advertised in the Butler Brothers' catalog of 1914 .The decoration is printed directly on the wood. The "stone" foundation base is 13 inches deep by 15 inches wide. There probably was a separate set of steps that attached in front, but gone now. The dormer roof that sits on top of the base roof is removable, or has come loose. The front porch has 3 pillars. The front of the house is printed with a front door, and 2 single plus 1 double window. The ends of the house have an arched window above and single large window below. One end of the house is hinged to open revealing the plain interior.
Condition: This little house is in well played with rustic condition. It is not perfect. Edges are worn, colors are no longer bright, the roof line joint has a gap, and it is generally rather shabby.
Please note that the first US shipping option is Priority Mail but I also offer USPS Standard ground shipping which may be much more economical for a package of this size and weight. Please choose the shipping option that best fits your needs.
Despite its well loved appearance, I think this little house is quite charming. I hope you will too.
