Second floor of the dollhouse. Containing Boulle furniture.
Two antique dolls. Notice the pink color of the material of the doll (right) where a sash has been lost. This shows the original color of the doll's dress compared to the faded color of the rest of it. I especially love dolls with porcelain bonnets.
German gold tea set. Notice burl like wood bed, and inticate beading on the dress of the Kestner Grandmother doll.
This photo is looking into the library next door.
Antique Boulle chest from the Musee Poupee in Paris.

Antique soft metal German fireplace.
Step into the salon, I'll have the maid light the fire, would you like a cup of tea? CM
Lets start in the Library Globe is an old pencil sharpener, "tobacco" rug. White rug is a vintage plastic doilie.
Antique Gothic style Boulle settee and chair.
Antique Gottschalk desk as a bar tray, I like to take pictures of my other dollhouse dolls for Ancestor portraits for the walls of my dollhouses. Sometimes you can see a family portrait handed down in the MH1.
Plus an antique German landscape.
I like to add dolls after photographing the room or sometimes you do not see the furniture.
Chauffeur Doll from ebay, he needs gloves, Grandfather doll, Kestner from Ruby Lane, actually not sure where Father doll came from. His clothing looks glued so that would make him more recent. An interloper...
A little hole in the wallpaper. I wish this old house could tell me about it's journey from Germany to San Francisco!
"Really," Father says, "I don't mind living in Tynietoy and Christian Hackers' at all. Cheers!" CM
