Measures 35 1/2" tall, 25 1/2" wide, and 15 deep. The house is somewhat Queen Anne in style. Dian thought it was probably not manufactured, but made by someone with some skill, early 20th Century. The house is in good structural condition.
It is made from 3/8 inch solid wood stock, not plywood. As a result, there are various separations between some of the boards.
The exterior has old paint, possibly original, I just don't know. The glass windows are trimmed with walnut shaped with a scroll saw.The front upper center window has a crack at a corner. Front door looks original, as does the little entrance porch and fret-work above. The front bay has a bit of wood missing along the front edge of the roof.
There are two attic rooms accessible through hinged roof panels. One panel has lost its hinges, but stays in place. The back was covered in painted paper, but some on one end is missing, showing bare wood. There are a few tell-tale small drill holes indicating the house was once wired, but that has been removed.The house rests on the side walls, with open space lower front and back. The interior has two rooms on each of the two main floors. Ceilings are 9 1/2 inches on the first floor and 9 on the second. The floors have been repainted brown.
The first floor rooms have old regular wallpaper, with lots of cracks where boards meet, and oily spots from museum putty. Upstairs paper is old, but newer than the first floor. The first floor has one fancy chandelier with real wax candles, upstairs room has crystal. Both have old pressed pasteboard medallions above. The crown molding is original and supports the floors above.I can see dark green paint through a few places in the wallpaper, and through a newer layer of mustard colored paint on the inside of the front. The window coverings are a mixed lot, some older lacework, some just fabric. I don't see anything sacred about the interior of this house, but like I said in the caption, the house is sturdy with good bones. Would be a great project for someone with basic dollhouse and miniature skills.
The house is largish and heavy. From the estate and personal collection of Dian Zillner, author of numerous books on Dolls, Doll accessories, and Doll Houses.
