What do you know about dollhouse bathrooms?

 Was the chamber pot the original indoor "plumbing"?

With an introduction on chamber pots  by Rhu McBee, the newest book by Patty Cooper is all about dollhouse bathrooms. 

From the "almost lovely" wooden bath pieces produced in Germany around 1900, to their metal bathroom pieces and bath roomboxes in the 1920s, collectors of dollhouses from this time period have a large variety of bathrooms to choose from. 

Not to be left behind, America and the UK  jumped right in with bath pieces made of metal, wood and plaster. We find them in the same colors that were popular in actual bathrooms during the, blue, orchid, pink and aqua.

Following right along with the new popularity of bathrooms in dollhouses, makers of dollhouse accesories produced a myriad of items to complete the dollhouse bathroom decor.

If you are looking for a resource to help you furnish a dollhouse in a period appropriate way, this book is for you!

Patty Cooper has published 26 books on dollhouses and dollhouse furniture that are a valuable resource for collectors, all available on Blurb.
