Nantucket Cottage by Mel Davey with Tynietoy furniture

This is the dollhouse I found at auction. It is a Nantucket Cottage made by Mel Davey.

Here it is after I brought it home. It is next to my Tynietoy Townhouse. The neighborhood is getting better.

I especially wanted this cottage to use with my Tynietoy garden pieces, the arch and benches and sundial. 

It is said Mel Davies wife painted the hollyhocks on the cottages.
This is a rather old and worn Tynietoy garden bench so it must be comfortable. 

The kitchen is just right for this Lynfield kitchen set. It is often mistaken for Tynietoy as that company made bench sets too, but the design is distinctive to Lynfield. I really like the bright colors.

The living room has a distinctive back wall. I placed a painting from our friend Neen's mother in the back as it matched the airy feel of the cottage nicely.

This snappy doll in her summer linen is visiting the Nantucket cottage.

 Here are two views of the upstairs bedroom.

The little space under the slanted roof is just enough room for a bathroom. 

I understand Mel Davey had a website. I want to learn more about him but if you google him today you find a young lady named Mel Davey on Facebook. I will share with you what I learn. More to follow.
Happy New Year! Cheers CM

What a sweet little cottage it is. It looks wonderful with your Tynietoy furniture and garden items. I especially like the bedroom with the green furniture, but the parlour and kitchen look great too,

Oh what an interesting little house! It does have the feel of a Nantucket Cottage! The furniture is perfect too.... it feels just like Grandma's summer Cottage by the sea.... even with the garden pieces outside! Love the look!
