We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a CHARMING RARE ANTIQUE WOODEN FRETWORK MANTEL CLOCK DISPLAY CASE!
Whether a collector of antique clocks and accessories, or wanting that SPECIAL display piece to showcase your FAVORITE small antique doll, you will love this ENCHANTING little cabinet with it's shape of a tiny DOLLHOUSE --------the PERFECT vignette for an ALL BISQUE or MIGNONETTE doll!
The case measures a total of 10" tall to the center top of it's PITCHED ROOF, 7 3/4" wide at the top, and is 8 1/4" wide at the base and 4 3/4" deep. The cabinet itself which would originally have housed a clock measures 8 3/4" tall to the top center, 5 3/4" wide and 3" deep, and the original round GLASS OPENING measures 4" in diameter! The case is made of dark wood with gorgeous HAND CARVED FRETWORK on the entire front and sides with GINGERBREAD TRIM on the corners and top, rendering this sweet little miniature an EXCEPTIONALLY ORNATE piece! It opens from the back with it's original slightly curved door and ORIGINAL LATCH, and the interior compartment would have originally housed a mantel clock, but we could think of a variety of other TINY TREASURES to showcase in this fabulous piece!
In the style of old world GERMAN CHARM, we date it from around the late 1800's to 1900 when fretwork was the rage, and with the exception of missing trim to the left side on the top as well as a piece of the left corner trim, it is completely ALL ORIGINAL and for being over 100 years old it is still very sturdy and DISPLAYS BEAUTIFULLY!
Because this UNIQUE piece is in the shape of a little DOLLHOUSE, for scale purposes we have shown this wonderful case next to our 13" antique French Fashion doll, and are also displaying in the interior a 4" antique ALL BISQUE doll--------we can see a pair of MIGNONETTE DOLLS showcased beautifully!
This CHARMING RARE ANTIQUE GINGERBREAD DOLLHOUSE WOODEN FRETWORK MANTEL CLOCK DISPLAY CASE is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration------the PERFECT DISPLAY piece to showcase and protect your FAVORITE clock or antique doll!
Any doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
