This grand antique Gottschalk blue roof dollhouse has plenty of eye appeal on the outside as well as inside. The exterior is covered in three different brick papers – green with red bandings on the foundation, yellow on the first floor and brick red on the second floor. Gable papers have half timber and sunburst designs. The main porch has an arch covered with lattice paper. Gilt metal and painted wood decorative railings add further detail.

Glazed windows have green painted mullions. The roof is painted blue with gold edging and has a separate chimney with two flues. Barge boards have blue and red pin striping.
The front and side are hinged and open to the lower and upper rooms as well as the green painted entry hall. Removable stairs and a hinged door to the parlor can be found in the entry hall. Original wallpapers on the lower and upper rooms are cut in panels and have decorative paper borders. Parquet flooring paper covers both floors. The attic is accessed through the door on the front as well as a small attic window. Stock number 3584 is written in pencil on the bottom.
