The Strombecker company made wooden dollhouse furniture from 1931 until the late 1950's and redesigned it several times along the way to keep up with the current styles. In 1938 a major redesign was done to both the 3/4" and 1" scale furniture and the sleeker curves of this living room set are illustrative of the new 'Modern' design. The construction of the furniture got simpler over the years, probably to reduce manufacturing costs, and only certain pieces had the functioning doors and drawers of the earlier pieces.
This is the complete living room set as issued and includes the sofa and matching chair and ottoman, slant front console radio, coffee table, pedestal side table and 2 lamps. The 'upholstery' on the sofa and chair was created with sprayed-on flocked paint in a deep maroonish-brown color. This new finish was referred to my Strombecker as "Dubonnet Izarine Simulated Upholstery" which, we assume, refers to the wine colored suede-like finish. The radio and tables are made of solid walnut and are stamped as such on bottoms.
Made in 1" scale, the sofa measures 2 3/4" tall, 6" long and 3" deep and the radio is 3 1/2" tall, 2" wide and just over 1" deep. The other pieces are relatively sized and more dimensions will be gladly provided. The room box in the second picture is about 12" wide.
All are in nice structural condition with some wear on the flocking and a few very minor signs of play wear here and there. The oval occasional table is a slightly lighter shade of wood that the other pieces and one leg of the coffee table may have been re-glued as it is not quite at right angles to the top surface. No breaks or wood losses.
