Gottschalk kitchen

I bought this kitchen set and found it was the larger scale. I only put a few
pieces in the kitchen area of the house. It is pictured here in the German Kitchen room box because I love the tiled wallpaper.The cabinet.I have S. Mehreen to thank for pointing out to me that the faucet really works. When you fill the top with water it trickles out the faucet into the basin then into a bucket.The table is worn. I have noticed little children love to set the table.The chair is quite large for the Gottschalk house. The blue decorations seem to be 1920 art deco, perhaps.I can only fit 2 pieces in the kitchen area. I love the blue kitchen utinsils, They are probably from the '60s or more recent as they came on a pink card. I am happy to have the other pieces for my German Kitchen roombox which frankly Mrs. Santa resides in... and you now how she gets about baking...

There's nothing as cozy as a blue and white kitchen with Dutch tiles!
And I love the working faucet, would have loved it even if it hadn't worked too, it's really beautiful!

Thanks Pubbdoll. This is one of my best houses. Of course this time in Doillhouse History was such a flowering! C

Christine, just keep your eyes open and look at as many blogs, ebay posting,and antique sites on line and you will see everything you need to know for when yours comes around. If you live in Germany or the Eastern Seaboard you are already ahead of the game! C

Hi, We sometimes forget that miniature house and contents don't always have to be perfect scale, sometimes it needs some oversize object to help us realize that what we create is an object of ART.
Big smig small shmall. Don't get too precious. We strive to enjoy what we do. Also maybe Mrs.Santa is a big lady.

Excellent point SWS. I was just disappointed I couldn't use it all...
Hmmm, I don't know if I waould say anything like that about Mrs, Claus... after all she has someone important's ear...one wouldn't want to antagonize her... C

Love it!! To me this is what dollhouses are all about. This and anything else that speaks to the collector in that magical way that makes one's heart soar.
