"I was searching for old dolls houses on the web, when I found your website. I have looked at all your dolls houses, they are really very interesting. I have been surprised by one of them: the Irwin Interior Decorator Set , which was produced in the USA for Christmas 1964. We have had, in France, something very similar in 1968. I did not know the american one, it's the first time I see one.
If you want to see the french version of this concept, I invite you to visit my web site, I've made a diaporama of mine: http://b.dassonville.free.fr/lamaisondecathy/index.html Our one is now very difficult to find, and has become very expensive, because of the furniture, which had been designed by Knoll designers."
Knoll?! I clicked the link immediately:Beatrice says the house is "1/8th or 1/9th scale. The little doll is 19cm tall (7,5 inches)" but I suspect it's the standard European 1/10th scale, same as Bodo Hennig.Thank you, Beatrice, for letting me share this treasure!
