The Double Room Box

 

This double room box has a door connecting the two rooms. They are nice spacious rooms; one with a light gray paneling and a hanger for a chandelier, while the other room has a tan paper with curtains hung on the two back walls. It also has a hanger for a chandelier that I forgot to place in the room for a picture!! The furnishings are to be sold separately, so you can look on my website under "furnishings" or contact me at antiquedh@comcast.net

 

Measurements: Overall dimensions of double room box: 16-3/4"high x 39"wide x 18" deep (includes side molding on top); Paneled room is 16-3/4"d. x 16"w.; Larger room with curtains is 16-3/4"d. x 19"w.

Circa: Turn of the Century

Condition: Overall condition of the two rooms is very nice, there is nice wide paneling at the top of the rooms and on the top of the wall dividing the rooms. The larger room shows some wear, but I would leave it and put some pictures on the wall. It has a chair rail with paneling below done in a dark mahogany stain which also is on the door. The floor covering was added at one time, but still looks very nice. It is removable.

Price: $750

 

               

 


The Glass House

As a recent buyer of this house, I'm not familiar with its history or its actual age. The last time I saw this house, it was displayed at Lucy's Dolls' House Shop in Camden, Maine, when I visited a number of years ago. Each time I approach this house in my living room to get a better view, I discover additional openings or details I hadn't noticed before. All of the ornamentation is carved wood, painted gold. The carving work is so amazing I have photographed each of these fine pieces that you see painted gold. Incidentally, since the back of the house is made exactly like the front façade of the house, one enters through the front door (first floor) or you'd enter through the same door in the back. The side panels of windows pull out to enter the second floor on both the right side and left side.

 

Beveled glass windows are found throughout the house. There are long narrow ones, some have wooden frames over the windows that look like they are paneled. There are even some square windows!

The roof is framed in dark wood that matches the rest of the house. Glass slanted panels are set in –one long one in the front and back. The sides have smaller panels of slanted glass. The very top of the house has a flat board to support the grand statue of a woman holding a pelican! The last photo shows her foot resting on a ball. The carving is just the finest carving I have ever seen with the detail of her hair and facial features!

Measurements: 27- ½"h.; add 10" for the carved lady on top of the roof x 33" width x 17" depth.
