The 1911 House can be described as eleven rooms of potential fun. Actually, more fun should be factored in, because the above-mentioned eleven rooms don't include the three-story stair hall, the second and third-floor hallways or the Stable Yard with a watering trough and plenty of room for a horse or two. Also located there is a privy for the Yardman.
This incredible Dollhouse was constructed of pine, most likely commercially, and probably in Spain. We surmise it was completed in the year 1911, due to the date proudly displayed on the house's cornice.
The house's original papers were in disrepair when we obtained it from a private European museum. Fortunately, we found vintage wall papers among the cache' of supplies that we obtained from John Darcy Noble's personal collection and many examples were utilized within these walls. The colors and variety of the patterns create a magical interior that will blend with vintage furnishings beautifully. The house's paint scheme is just the way we found it.
We did fully re-electrify the house, including the hallways, as the old system was outdated and the wrong voltage. The lights emit a wonderful glow, especially through the pattern-glass window in the bath.
The charm of this house is undeniable and it's now ready to provide many more years of collecting joy.
The 1911 House would be best displayed upon a base around 20-24" tall.
The dimensions are: 23" deep by 59" tall by 93" long.
The floor to ceiling measurement on all three floors is between 15-16" tall.
