The roof may have been touched up or stained otherwise it is all original in mint condition. This is or may be the best remaining doll house of this make and design. The front opens to reveal the main house both stories while a side door opens to reveal a cast lead fireplace reading room. We are in process collecting period furniture and decorum as well as dolls to inhance this home. Bliss made no scale furniture or assessories for their houses.

The doll is unmarked German. The dog is early American 1900 circa. The transportation toy is LEHMANN, GERMAN 1920 circa. Puppies are of unknown age. All dating aproximate estimates.

It's certainly cute! I got curious and did a little googling. I found this site, which is a marvelous collection: http://www.redwoodmatrix.net/dollhouses/anderson.htm

Whew...I should say so. I do not recall of ever hearing of this person efforts but we did very little snooping about the West Coast. This was mostly in the Portland, Oregon area.

We have the famous Strom Museum in Rochester, NY. just a few hours North of my home. We believe it to be the most significant museum for dolls and toys in the world. Google into this one to see what another individual started and then gave it all back to the world that gave it to her.
