This vintage dollhouse is pictured on a post card published by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. From the construction of this dollhouse, I think it was probably built between 1935-45. I love looking at pictures of lovely old doll houses...so when I saw this post card on eBay it became part of my collection of vintage postcards.
This dollhouse was donated to the Society by a Mrs. Thomas Coleman. Much of the furniture is original to the house. The house itself was built by Mrs. Coleman's father as an exact replica of their house in Madison, Wisconsin.
Great staircase...the front door must have been placed behind the staircase as that looks to be an entry hall to the right of it. Several items in this room look like they might be Tynie Toy...maybe the Tynie Toy collectors can help me out!
The dining room has a lovely lace curtain. Could that be a Tynie Toy dining set?
An Arcade sink is recognizable in this kitchen!
A nice cozy bedroom...with lovely old curtains that lay flat...not like curtains in my dollhouses today. Wonder what I am doing wrong?
And a cozy little nook for the bathroom.....sorry the picture is so blurred.
Could that be a dollhouse behind the yellow rocker in this cute little room for the children?
Any guesses on the brand of furniture?
Okay JoAnn and Jamie, my collector friends that live in Wisconsin, if you go to Madison please check out this little house at the Historical Society for me!
