Very Rare Antique LOUIS XVI Furnishing with Columns for Early Dolls
Very rare LOUIS XVI furniture. This furniture is presented in Henry-René d'Allemagne book Histoire des Jouets (Toys History) published in 1904. He explains that such furnishing was manufactured during LOUIS XVI reign (1774 to 1792). It is a museum piece.
Such furniture is made up of beech planks simply assembled with small nails. Externally it is pink painted intended to imitate vaguely the wood of the islands; the moldings and sculptures consist of strips of paper cut and stamped; the entrance to the lock is represented by a small square of paper, and the handles and rings are small copper wires. This model is exceptional because two columns give him a very elegant design.
Beautiful furniture to emphazise your early dolls.
The furnishing is 12 3/8"(31.5 cm) high and 6 7/8"(17.5 cm) wide.
Excellent condition, except small holes treated vigorously.
France - Circa 1780.
