The charming old dollhouse bed is made in 1" scale and measures 5 3/4" long, 3 1/4" wide and 4" tall at the headboard. The footboard is about an inch shorter and mattress height is about 2".
Made of light wood with nailed construction and enameled in antique white with gold trim on side rails and tops of posts. The inserts on head and foot boards are thin particle board or heavy cardboard stamped with vertical slots. The inside is covered with a decoratively patterned paper that is glued down. The bed is typical of the furniture produced in Germany by Gottschalk in the late 1800's.
In very nice condition for its age with no damage or repairs. Some stress cracks in the paint on head and foot boards and an overall vintage patina in the form of light smudging and surface irregularities. It is very sturdy and sits with no wobble.
Also including is the bedding which consists of a blue and white plaid mattress, top sheet and matching spread and pillow. All are in nice condition with some age-related tanning especially to the flat once-white sheet. The coverlet is made of 2 layers and the spot shown in the last picture is only on one side and easily disguised. The bedding is very cute but not original to the (older) bed.
