Spectacular French Fireplace 
In 2010, a fireplace very similar to the one pictured here was featured at a Theriault auction. It was the collection of Hanne Buktas of Vienna, Austria. This one is painted a soft cream color and has the checkerboard lithograph paper of gray and brown at the base. The fireplace interior is of silvered pressed tin with gilded edging which is also found on the grate and fenders. The hearth area is of a black paper. (The fireplace at Theriault's had lithograph paper to simulate marble on the exterior and was signed by the famous Paris toy shop "Au Musee  des Enfants". That fireplace sold for $1300. plus premium.) A magnificent fireplace for a special dolls' house!!
