German Dollhouse Furniture - Hall Cupboard with Bench - Larger 1" Scale
This unusual piece is a combination of cupboard and bench seat and could be used in almost any room of a doll house and would be especially nice in a foyer or hall. It is a larger size and is comparable to Schneegas and may have been made by that company. The last picture shows it with a typically sized 1" scale Schneegas Golden Oak dresser for size and color comparison. Measures 7 1/2" tall, 3 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" deep (top section is 1 1/4").
Made of light wood with glued construction and a reddish golden stain. The doors open with small embossed pewter knobs and are decorated with a stenciled pattern that replicates inlaid wood. The doors are flanked by two columns of rounded wood which either has an unusual grain or is faux stained to resemble some sort of exotic wood. The bench seat opens on two tiny nail hinges and the cupboard doors are hinged in the same manner. Two turned wood finials and an embossed cornice piece are glued to the top and it sits on four feet; the front two are turned wood and similar to the finials.
In very nice condition and sturdy with no looseness but a slight wobble. Notice in the close-up picture that one of the finials has a missing piece which, fortunately, faces the back. This picture also shows that the cornice piece has been re-glued. Some minor surface disruptions here and there but overall in very nice condition.
No marks but probably German and made around the turn of the 20th Century.
