We just wanted to show you how our consigner originally displayed this charming home! Dollhouse Measurements: 23 tall x 17 deep x 25 long. Materials: Wood, Glass, Antique Wallpaper, Antique Lace, all original to house. Maker's Marks: none, unknown; handmade.
Condition: All original; wear to edges as seen; wear to edges as seen; door opens; removable roof probably once had leather hinges but gone now (stays on fine without hinges). Scale: approx 1 to 1' scale or slightly larger (door and windows not really in scale, can use a multitude of scales). Welcome to the Turn of the Century House- so named because it's a wonderful father-made home for a little girl way back then! Our consigner filled the interior with lots of antique and vintage pieces, all in a variety scales, as befits this one-of-a-kind house!
Undoubtedly handmade by a daddy of limited means, the house has been made of old crates and wood with real glass windows, and with great attention to detail- goodness, it even has curtains! And it's filled with 1890s-1900s Victorian flair, as you can see! The home is filled with antique miniatures and dolls, all of which are also up in other auctions.Back to the house-- this large two-story, two-room house features a big downstairs room, which our consigner has designed as a parlor and kitchen, and the attic room upstairs is just that, an attic- filled with things the household doesn't need at present- but the children of the house have discovered the old toys upstairs, and have made it their hideaway! This house is pretty much as it was back in 1900- you can still see the original wallpapers (much faded and tattered now), the glass is all original (and not cracked, a miracle), the exterior paint is all original and has never been repainted, the lace curtains are original to the house (quite dirty after 100+ years) and the front of the house features some nice fretwork under the eaves and a rather fancy front door with a window (no glass) inset into it! The front door opens, too! Though the rooms are quite deep, the first floor ceiling is tall, so you can see everything in both rooms easily- truly a collector's delight. There is wear as seen and as to be expected.
There is vintage dust in the corners and wear overall as seen, and a bit of miniwax to some surfaces, (though that's easily removed), but this is such a happy home we doubt you'll mind! Check our other auctions for the furnishings from this house- so Victorian! Please check our other auctions for the furnishings from this house!

Marionettejilly is not a big ol' corporation. We are actually pretty nice folks, with an interest in antiques, fighting upstream against inflation and the economy just like everyone else.We sell mostly vintage and antique items, with wear and the ravages of time as to be expected. Do not expect our vintage items to be in new or like new condition- many of our items are fragile, played with, and many are over 100 years old. Many of our items have been in storage for years. So if you are allergic to dust, or sensitive to certain scents or smells, we do not recommend purchasing vintage items. In the rare event that there is a problem with an item, just sit back, take a deep breath, and tell us about it calmly.
We have not set out to scam you: we try hard to be accurate with descriptions- but we're human, and might have missed something thats important to you. Please do not expect a response during evening or weekend hours- with any luck we are out doing something fun, far far away from the computer! ABOUT ITEM NOT AS DESCRIBED complaints and vintage items. So if there is anyone out there who is even considering employing this tactic, please pass us by. And, as a final note to the patient people who have bothered to read everything so far: Sorry if we sound crabby.Sometimes people can be so petty and unreasonable it can break your heart. We've had a run of really awful experiences this season- let's hope it ends soon, before we lose the rest of our hair, our jolly perspective on life in general, and our much-needed sense of humor!!
