Keystone of Boston made some great dollhouses! This little cottage was probably made around 1940, as the style of roof falls between the late 1930's solid colored roof with printed shingles and the variegated colored shingles of the late 1940's houses. If you can't tell from the picture, this roof has embossed shingles...the only one of my 20 different Keystone houses with this type of roof. This house was new in the box when I received it, so it is in pristine condition for a 70 year old house. And, just like items we buy in the 21st century, the pre-drilled holes didn't line up!
A floating wall divides the two spaces; but there is plenty of room for Gramma Wuensche to read, crochet, and cook lunch for her grandkids when they visit! All the furniture is smaller size Strombecker with the exception of the bookcase made by the Kage Company.
The vanity holds items by Dolly Dear and the bureau has a lovely scarf made by my new eBay friend, Amy Korn. Yes, moms and grandmoms used dresser scarfs in the 1940's!
Gramma Wuensche has antimacassars on the backs of her sofa and chair....are you old enough to remember when everyone used these? She has the cookies ready on the table and is warming milk for the hot chocolate!
