FOR SALE: Here is an amazingly charming house done in the French Deaveau style by the German firm of Gottschalk. (Info according to the previous owner---this is an estate sale and I am trying to do my best to describe the items from a past collector).
The beautiful papers are soft in color and things like the window curtains, brick panels on the exterior and entire front facade are all too appealing. The sides and back are painted.
The house is being sold "as is"....there are a few bits of paper missing from the edges of the two doors that open to display the interior of the house; I believe that the black ironwork over the door is new (plastic but it looks nice); and on the papers door stoop there is a round clear glue spot that indicates that something may have been there before...but it seems unlikely that there would have been columns, etc. as the house looks so nice as it is.
The previous owner has written in pencil on the bottom of the house the following, " French, purchased Arlene Adler 1981, Washington D.C. (USA)," I did a little research and Arlene Adler was a major antique dealer/seller in dollhouses, miniatures and doll-related items.
I am selling this charming house for $600 (USA) plus shipping. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
The furnishings inside are NOT included in this price but are available for sale---please inquire if you are interested. (Click on the photo to enlarge photo and scroll down to see interior shot.)
