Christian Hacker Dolls' House

   There were several different models of houses made by Christian Hacker. This one has the desirable mansard roof (which is removable) and a front opening facade that has strong block quoining on the front corners of the house. This particular model opens as one unit instead of the stacking variety where each story is stacked one upon the other. The original curved balcony is still intact, the windows are lined in red paint to represent mullions and both doors are original with painting that resembles wood graining. The original door knocker and door knobs are still in place.

   The dollhouse owners have had this house for three generations and about fifty years ago it was over painted on the exterior to a soft cream (it has age to the paint giving an old patina). some of the wallpapers were replaced, but tastefully done.

   The original interconnecting doors retain their paint in cream, maroon and a light aqua. The butterfly door knobs are there too. The first floor has wooden varnished floors where the original papers were removed. The second floor has painted floors instead of paper floors.

   All the windows have their original Hacker wooden curtain rods with turned knobs on the ends painted gold.

   House has four rooms in the main part of the house and two hallways with a staircase (staircase with railings are in fine condition, no missing parts or repair). The kitchen has the built in cupboard and stove unit (repainted).

   On the third floor, which is the attic, are two rooms of good size with wallpapers and a connecting door. One must remove the roof to get access to these rooms. The roof is painted, replacing the original lithograph paper.

   The house has been well cared for and came to me with all its furnishings which will be sold in different categories on the website.
