This adorable little doll house nursery set includes a 4 drawer chest, playpen, small crib, chair and bathinette. Made of light wood with glued and nailed construction and enameled in ivory.
Made in 1" scale; the dresser measures 4" tall, 2 3/4 wide and 1 1/2" deep. The playpen is 1 1/2" tall by 3 1/8" square. Crib is 3 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. More dimension will be gladly provided.
The dresser is very nice with 4 functioning drawers that open with small brass tacks. All the drawer interiors are present and there are no breaks or repairs. A 'Germany' stamp on bottom panel is barely discernable.
The crib and playpen are assembled with tiny nails and the round wooden dowels are inset into the horizontal pieces. They are in similar condition with some rust marks around the nail heads and paint chipping, especially on one rail of the playpen. This piece has a cardboard floor while the crib's base is wood.
Younger shoppers may not remember bathinettes but they were around as late as the 1950's and used to bathe the baby. On the 'real' version a hose was attached to the sink faucet to fill the rubber sling with water and then to the underside to drain when the bath was over. This cute little version would not hold water as the material is loosely woven cotton. The two frames are hinged midway with small nails allowing it to be folded up for storage. Measures 3 1/4" tall (closed) and 2 5/8" wide. The fabric has tanned over the years and it suffers from quite a bit of paint loss. Fortunately, the wood color is similar to the paint color making the damage less noticeable.
All pieces are sound with no breaks or repairs but exhibit an overall vintage patina with light surface smudging, edge wear and paint loss. The dresser and chair are square and sound while the other pieces are slightly wonky; not quite square and level, especially the crib. There is some minor difference in the paint color and especially the bathinette frame which is more yellow that the other pieces. Probably not originally a set but all are from Germany and date to the early 20th Century c 1920ish.
More pictures, dimension and information will be gladly provided on this very cute set.
