We are offering a wonderful accessory to add to your doll collection, a folk art painted doll high chair that folds into a game table, very much like the full sized version from the same time period. Although it is difficult to date we suspect that it dates to around World War II and very probably slightly earlier than that. The chair stands a maximum of 20 inches tall and the footprint of the four legs is 9 ½ inches by 8 inches. The front legs are hinged in the middle so that the bottom will flip up and becomes a play table in front of the seat. When in the play table configuration it measures approximately 14 inches long and 13 inches high. The whole piece is decorated in shades of pale turquoise blue and light gold-brown. There are some painted floral elements decorating the seat, as well as the fold-down eating tray and foot rest. Overall, the condition is good. It has the expected light layer of dirt along with mild stains that the surface picked up from years of use by a youngster. A modern hook and eye have been added to the back of the piece that is used to keep it in the chair mode. It is easy to unhook and then shift into the table mode. The play table has two sets of wooden knobs affixed to the surface that are designed to hold groups of sliding beads. The only significant damage to the piece is that one of the sets of beads is missing. It would not be difficult for the new owner to replace them if desired. The photos are an integral part of the listing and will give a good sense of how the piece works and what its condition is. So be sure to check the photos carefully.
