American Soft Metal Dollhouse Furniture : American Soft Metal Dollhouse Furniture ca. 1890-1920 identifies the fragile but detailed furniture which is often shown with lithographed cardboard rooms. Some of it was sold as souvenirs of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Several companies made similar furniture, but the author has found documentation which provides positive attribution for most pieces.
Dolly Dear Dollhouse Accessories, 1928 - 1961: Dolly Dear Dollhouse Accessories is the story of Rossie Turner Kirkland, a talented artist, living in a small Tennessee town, whose kitchen table business expanded during the Great Depression and World War II to sales in major department stores across the country. The tiny items she created were intended to complement dollhouse furniture sold by companies such as Schoenhut, Strombecker, Tynietoy, and Lynnfield. They are highly collectible and findable, but were difficult to identify until the publication of this book which contains more than 350 examples, most in the original packaging.
