Dolls & Dollhouses

Early American dollhouses were greatly influenced by Dutch and German heritage and the few gifted makers from each country. Soon, by the early 19th century, specifically German companies were exporting a great deal of dollhouse furniture to the United States and as color lithography became easily-produced in the Victorian Era, rooms of dollhouses were often papered within creating brightly colored wallpaper and a whole new way of expression. Exquisite does not describe the beauty of a well furnished Doll’s house and the fun in collecting these miniature objects of art pales only to the joy of creating one’s own designs.
