Vintage Tudor Cottage, Artist Made. Dollhouse Measurements: as seen; 24 x 25 x 25; 1 to 1' scale. Materials: Wood, real reed or raffia thatching; wallpaper, etc.
Maker's Marks: none; very finely artist made from the Greenleaf series of historic houses Glencroft'; we do not see an artist signature. Condition: Slight wear to edges, some wear, slight fading to wallpapers as seen (small tear in living room paper); front door is off its hinges (can be reglued), otherwise in very good condition. Scale: 1 to 1' scale. Age: c1990s- early 2000s or so era.If youve ever wanted to live in a romantic English thatched cottage, nows your chance! This started out life as a humble Greenleaf kit- but in the hands of a skilled miniaturist, its a gorgeous masterpiece! In excellent condition, the black-and-white timberframed house has wonderful architecture- its as pretty from the front as it is interesting from the back, even when empty! Look at that glorious roofline, made all the more charming by the addition of thatching, and with windows everywhere, no dolls will be without sunlight! It has an added front and back garden base, (the side garden is not included in this listing), with grass, a flowerbox, a lovely white picket fencing and even some garden plantings (included) in the front and flowers arching over the roof. It has period appropriate wallpapers and paintwork; our consigner designed it to be a Tudor-era cottage with a Victorian era family living in it, but it could really be decorated as anything from Medieval fantasy to modern chic. It has two built-in fireplaces, both with mantels, and the larger one even has bookshelves and wood storage. We particularly like the little stairs, which wind around the side and create a little nook and landing halfway up.
All the doors are panelled and have nifty Tudor arches to them- what details! On both the upstairs and downstairs large windows, there are even windowseats- imagine the possibilities of having a little doll reading there! The workmanship on this house is really exquisite and it honestly does not look to have been built with children in mind- this is more of a collector showpiece for all these Renaissance and Harry Potter goodies youve been amassing! There is wear as seen and as to be expected.
