The Child's Bedroom set was added to the Strombecker line of wooden dollhouse furniture in 1938. The first set was enameled in gray with orange and yellow knobs and is exceedingly rare. Next came this set in peachy-pink and in the 1950's the color was changed to a brighter pink.
This is the complete set as issued and includes a youth bed, night stand, wardrobe, steps, toy or blanket chest, table and chair, duck rocker, clock and lamp. Made of light wood with glued construction and enameled in light pink with orange and yellow accents. The adorable duck-shaped baby tender is painted in bright yellow with orange beaks and black eyes. Clock is black and lamp is green with a tan shade.
Made in 1" scale but down-sized slightly for a child. The bed measures 5 1/4" long and 2 3/4" wide. The chifferobe is 3 1/2" tall and wide and 1 1/2" deep. Other pieces are relatively sized and more dimensions will be gladly provided. Some of the parts are functional (top drawers and door on wardrobe, lid on chest) while others are incised into the wood. The small wooden knobs are glued into holes in the wood.
In nice condition with repaired breaks on the neck of one of the ducks and both rails on the bed. No other breaks or repairs and very little paint wear but some age-related foxing and discoloration, surface disruptions and also some smudging from little fingers. We have tried to show these areas in the photos and they act as further illustration of condition. More on request.
We also have several single pieces and a partial set of the 50's version of the nursery that are not listed in our shop and lots more Strombecker pieces, both in 3/4" and 1" scale. If you are looking for something in particular to fill out your set let us know, we just might have what you're looking for!
