This lovely two room dolls' house was made by Moritz Gottschalk and has a remarkable facade of architectural details. The house has lithograph papers of stone work on the first story and brick on the second story. The window trims are made of a heavy card with pieces of wood at the top and bottom. The house opens from the front and has upper and lower rooms of original wallpapers and floor papers. (just slight discolor on wallpapers from age).

The main entrance has carved columns and painted brick over the doorway. Another smaller bay window is above the entrance. The tower with its high pointed spiral roof and open window construction sets on top of a square window bay that is on both levels of the house. Most of all, we cannot help but admire the fine carving and painting of scroll work mounted on a flat surface that is attached to a roof dormer. The deeply carved motif has the outline of a harp set in the center. Flat columns with scroll work on top frame this wonderful piece of architecture. On the very top of this structure and above the roof line is another piece of carved pediment. Heavily carved scroll work painted cream, soft yellow and brown make this decorative section dominate the structure of the house. 

This house is all original and comes from our collection. It measures: 30"h. to top of tower roof -17-5/8"w.-on base x 14"d. on base. SOLD
