Lithograph Dolls' House - Maker Unknown
This lithograph two room doll's house has the look of a Bliss house and was made about the same time as Bliss, but the maker is unknown. What makes it different from a Bliss besides the different lithography papers, is the molding that appears where the gutters on a full size house would be. Thus, the term "Gutter Houses" has been coined to these houses. The lithograph papers on the main part of the house are very nice; clear and crisp. (The base and the dormers have missing papers and the base is over-painted). Tan paper appears on three sides of the house with lined bricks on the first floor and a combination of brick and shingles on the second floor. The trim work is done in a dark green. All the windows that have lithograph paper of curtains and shades which are found on three sides of the house. The two open windows on the first floor in the front have isinglass glass and curtains.
