On Layaway - German Dollhouse Furniture - 7 Piece Bedroom Set - 1910-1920
This lovely doll house bedroom set consists of 7 pieces: 2 beds, 2 night stands, dresser, pier mirror and chair. Made of light wood with glued construction. Made by Eppendorfer & Nacke or another of the many toy makers that were in business is the Thuringia area of Germany throughout the 19th Century and the first part of the 20th. The finish has the same satiny smooth finish or veneer as the Schneegas' Gold Oak line but these have a medium brown finish with a rather grayish cast.
The scale of the pieces vary slightly. While the dresser, night stands and mirror are in fairly standard 1" scale, the beds are smaller and the chair is, perhaps, larger. Pieces from this set are shown in; "Antique & Collectible Dollhouses & their Furnishings" by Zillner & Cooper where they are described in just this way and suggest that the beds could be used as youth beds in a 1" scale house or setting.
The beds measure 4 3/4" long, 2 1/2" wide and 2 2/3" tall at the headboard. The dresser is 3 1/2" wide, 2" deep and 6 3/4" tall. The chair is 4 1/4" tall (2" to seat) and 2" wide and deep and the mirror stand is 7 1/2" tall and 2" wide and deep. More dimensions will be gladly provided.
The bottom 2 drawers on the dresser are functional, the top one and also the drawers on the night stands are not while the doors both open on these pieces.
The attached mattresses are printed with a traditional design on blue silk and the lace trimmed pillows are also pale blue silk (these are probably not original to the set). Thin pressed tin wreath and swag motifs are attached to most pieces and all the drawers (whether functional or not) have small round-head tacks as knobs.
The condition of all pieces is very nice with no damage other than soiling and minor shredding to the silks and age-related spotting to both mirrors. The finish color is irregular in places; not the even color of the golden oak pieces. It is the original finish but has, perhaps, accumulated a patina over the years. Please use the photos as further illustration and more on request.
