Vintage Wooden Doll Furniture - Pennsylvania Dutch Style Rocker and Tilt-Top Table - Larger Size
A charming rocking chair and oval tilt-top table made of light wood and hand painted in the so-called 'Pennsylvania Dutch' style. No labels but probably made by the Amish folks located in and around Lancaster County PA as we have had made examples of this furniture with labels attesting to this.
This furniture is usually found in play scale size and was shown in a 1950's FAO Schwarz catalog with 8" Wendy dolls. This chair and table are in an usually large size and the last picture compares them to play scale and 1/12 dollhouse sized chairs.
The chair measures 8" tall from top to bottom of rockers but is about 7" when sitting on the rockers. About 4" wide and 6" deep overall. The table is 3 1/2" tall (5" with top rotated) and the oval top measures 3 1/4" by 2".
Made of light wood and enameled in black with hand painted floral and heart motif on chair back and outlined in yellow along arms, legs and seat. The table is more subtly painted and probably older than the chair. The top is outlined in gold with a gold design on top.
The table top pivots on small nails but a small block of wood prevents it from opening to 90 degrees from the spindle column. We won't argue with the design but wonder why this wood was added and, of course, won't remove it.
Both pieces are in very nice condition with no breaks or repairs and just some very minor dings here and there.
