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!!
