Lot 0369 Details

Description
American Victorian, circa mid to later 19th century; One of the more celebrated houses in the collection is this imposing dolls' house in rare townhouse form. This house has been pictured and discussed in many of Mrs. Jacobs books, most recently on pages 11-14 of Antique Dolls' Houses, Flora Gill Jacobs © 2005. While very similar in form and construction to the Tiffany-Platt house, this structure has it's own unique architectural features. The dentilated roof line and cornice over the double doors and mostly pedimented molding and mullions on the large windows are all stained and painted a rich brown which are perfectly complemented by the deep ochre coloring of the exterior walls. The hinged 3 part front panel opens to reveal 5 large rooms. The first and third floor rooms measure appr. 17.5" w. x 14" t., while the grand second floor room is 35.5" w. x 14.75" t. all rooms are 19" d. The interior retains early wall papers and kitchen floor paper. Painted and stained wood mantels remain in all rooms (two in the grand room and a larger in lower right hand room). Period lace curtains dress the large glazed windows while heavy cards covered in vintage velvet covers the original stained wood floors. The extensive and opulent furnishings as displayed by Mrs. Jacobs will be offered in the next 43 lots.
60" t. x 44" w. at roof line x 20" d.
