What a beautiful room box this is with its original papers in shades of blue and yellow in a combination of floral and geometric designs. All of the interior was covered although there is some discoloration and loss. We especially are intrigued with the wall shelf on each side of the box which also is covered and trimmed with paper. The box measures 21" long X 11" deep X 17" high which is almost double traditional doll house scale. It shows furniture, wall hangings, and a rug beautifully and authentically, because of its age and origin. The bottom of the box has some remnants of old newsprint and we spotted some British items priced in pounds sterling. The finish of the exterior of the box is bubbled and because the papers are antique, we estimate this was made in the latter part of the 19th century. The front of the box is open and on three sides there is gilt trim which is a lovely highlight.
