This antique Gottschalk red roof dollhouse is so adorable with its steep pitched gambrel roof and cheerful yellow paint with orange brown trim. The matching dormer features three windows with white pressed card mullions and a white window box with dried flowers. Above, a small window with diamond pressed card mullions lets in additional light.
A green pinstriped front door with original knob is recessed. In front, a railing with wooden posts and pressed card balusters is painted white with gold pin striping and finials. The porch with stairs on each end is painted grey as is the foundation. Windows with mullions flank the door.
The sides have stenciled windows and hinged panels that swing out to reveal two rooms that are painted white with paper flooring resembling wood parquetry. The back has a hinged roof that opens to the attic room which runs the width of the house. Marked in pencil underneath, '5619'. It is found on page 195 of the book Moritz Gottschalk by Marianne Cieslik. It was produced in 1914 – 1915.
Made in 3/4" scale, the dollhouse measures 12" t x 11 3/8" w x 7 1/2" d. The larger room measures 4" t x 6 1/8" w x 5 1/8" d. The smaller room is 4" t x 3 3/4" w x 5 1/8" d. The attic is 6" t x 9 5/8" w x 5 1/8" d.
The house has light paint wear and a few splits in the wood. One latch on the side is gone as are two chimneys and porch posts. The flooring in the small room has missing paper along the edge. Overall in very good condition.
A delightful house to display on a bookshelf or as part of a street scene.
