Christmas present: "Dollhouse & Furniture Advertising 1880-1980's" by Dian Zillner
Thank you Shale for this book. I barely opened it and look what I found!
I received this old varniushed oak set when I purchased some Bliss furniture. I thought it was American made and now I have some background!
This newspaper add is from the Charles Wilson Co. of New York.These chairs are found on page 6
of her book. It says: "an oak bedroom set for 19 cents". I use the bed that came with it in the CH house.
This is the bed. The footboard is the same as the add, but the headboard is fancier. Lace is my mother's old tablecloth. Fainting couch Sonia Messer missing legs! Oriental screen, postcard, antique french tin wash stand. Chest of drawers with mirror came with bed. Chest 1980s. I have to change the color of the bricks in the fireplace or soften it with a screen and wood...
Thanks, Shale and Dian Zillner.
