This dollhouse bedroom set was made by Star Novelty Works in the early part of the 20th Century. It was marketed under the brand name of American Toy Furniture.
Made of solid oak with glued construction and finished with a coat of varnish or shellac. The set includes the bed, 3 drawer mirrored dresser, wash stand and rocker. Also included are the bed clothes which were found with the set but were not originally sold with the furniture.
These pieces are fancier than others we have seen from the company and feature scroll cut details and drawers that open with tiny soft metal knobs. Advertised as large 1" (1 1/2"=1') scale only the bed in this set is perhaps larger than traditional 1" scale. It measures 6 1/4" long, 5" wide and 4 3/4" tall at the headboard. The dresser measures 6" tall, 3 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" deep. Please request more dimensions and photographs if you are not sure of the scale. We are limited to 9 pictures and would be glad to provide more and show these with examples of other furniture in both large 1" and 1" scale.
All pieces are in relatively nice condition with no breaks but re-glues noted on the rocking chair and headboard. The repair to the head board is odd; although the scrolling matches that of the foot board, the joint between the pieces is just not quite right. The strip of wood attached to the front side (probably added to help hold the two pieces together) has an unused notch and does not look right and we can't picture how this piece would go on correctly. Way to hard to explain so we have added some close-ups of this area. While tempted to try to break this joint and re-glue, it was made with hot glue so we decided to leave as is for fear of damaging the wood, at least for now. The drawers open nicely and the pieces are square and sound. A small corner is missing from the top piece on the dresser (best seen in the first photo) and there is a hole and some wear to the fabric covering the horse hair stuffed rocker seat. Also some black lines on the side of the bed that appear to be under the varnish. The dresser mirror shows aging and silver loss.
The bottom door on the wash stand is either a glued-on false panel or is stuck shut. We did not try to force it open. The knobs are made of very soft metal, perhaps lead, and are held in place with a bent over tang. We unfolded one of these to see if we could tighten them up on the drawer fronts and quickly decided to leave these alone as the metal fractured slightly and we could tell that it wouldn't take much bending to break.
The bedding includes a flannel covered mattress, silk spread, blanket and roll pillow. These are very cute but rather crudely made, perhaps by a child. The silk covering the pillow is severely shredded with age but the other fabrics are healthy although show overall foxing and discoloration. The rug is not included.
Again, please ask for more photos and/or information on this nice old set.
