The Nostalgic German DollHouse. Typically Germany was noted for its superior ability to fashion superb Doll Houses. It shipped these fashionable structures to Central Europe, Britain, and North America. Japan even copied their detailed designs.
After World War II doll houses were manufactured in greater quantities with less attention to detail than ever before, thus making the models more accessible than ever for middle class folk to own them.
This square model simply looks intriguing. Oh to live in the time when people were good craftsmen.
Not that there are not those today, it's just that everyone seems to want it now. No one seems to slow down long enough to bring out the details and enjoy the journey.
In Germany during the middle part of the 20th century 1:10 scale became popular based on the metric system. Dollhouses coming out of Germany today remain closer in scale to 1:10 than 1:12.
It was made in the early 1860s and rumored to be constructed with something as simple as orange boxes.
We are trying to imagine this process. Our orange boxes today tend to be rather small. But back then.... it definitely was a different era.
Notice how beautifully detailed it is. Awesome. To have that talent ourselves!
From the furniture to the outside this house is amazing.
It is fashioned with furnishing from an important German doll's house furniture maker - Schneegas of Waltershausen.
The German craftsmen definitely were talented.
Could You Construct Your Dollhouse from an Orange Box? Do you think you could make a dollhouse out of something odd or original looking. If not why not?
As they say the sky is the limit if you are willing to go there. We can feel the ideas forming can you? Like what we would need in supplies to accomplish this design. Already an idea has presented itself.
How about yourself? Let your imagination out to play. Become as a child and create something exciting to you.
It's a small frying pan. Just by looking at it we are greatly interested in pursuing a design of our own. Of an unusual kind, naturally. Should prove adventuresome. As for you keep grabbing ideas from all around you. You can do anything you set your mind to.
