What a delightful display item. Mounted on a 16" X 16" piece of plywood is this ramshackle cottage. Grey, weathered siding, and shingles, hide the primitive, and Victorian furniture waiting within. The front door is propped open, and an old codger, nursing his mug, with a crockery jug at his feet, waits for his next fishing trip. His rowboat sits on shore, ready to go. The back of the house is one large window, used to view the contents inside. All in one room with the kitchen, cupboard, cook stove, sink and water pump, and myriad accessories on one wall, bed and coverlet on the opposite wall, oak dining table and two chairs, lamp table, student lamp, chandelier, overstuffed chair and ottoman, in the center. Lace curtains, and a round rag rug complete the decor. The house is 16" wide, 13" wide, and 12" tall. The two hole out house has no door, but plenty of paper. We don't know when this piece was lovingly assembled, but it was obviously a labor of love. The size scale is not consistent, but these folk art pieces are done with what is available, or what can be made. If you have any questions, please let us know.
