Child's Doll House Armoire. C.1890
A charming antique English bamboo and golden pine dollhouse armoire. The cupboard has a mirror on the door framed in bamboo. There is one drawer beneath the mirrored doors with original knobs. The knob on the left has a nick of the wood missing. Inside the armory there is a shelf that may have been for the folded clothes or shoes.
The mirror on the door is original to this piece of doll furniture. There is some early loss to the backing of the glass. Measurements: from the base of the supporting feet to the top of the decorative pediment is 18 inches high. Not including the pediment this cupboard is 15 1/2 inches high. The cupboard is 8 3/4 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep.
Looking closely at the drawer I wonder that at one time there may have been a second drawer which was lost over time. This cupboard is in very nice nice condition and has survived a child’s play. C.1890
