One of a kind, unique piece; inspired by the old nursery rhyme "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe". An Ohio man built the dollhouse for his. The house is shaped like a boot/shoe with a leather exterior, laces up the front and a shingled roof with a chimney.There are two floors inside with some built in furniture. There are four working light "fixtures" inside and a plug on the outside to hook up to a battery power supply. There is an assortment of furniture and dolls included that we received with the house from the owner of the lot. Also included is a black and white photo, from the early 1960s, of the original owner as a little girl playing with the dollhouse in a garden.
You can see some of the dolls included in the photo as well. CONDITION: Good condition, considering the nature of the item and it being over 60 years old! Definitely a bit primitive inside. Discolored and damaged wallpaper and flooring.
The leather on the exterior has yellowed/stained and is lifting up in areas. Everything included is in played-with condition. The lighting inside does work, but we don't have any working bulbs for it (set up for 6w bulbs), and it will need a power supply made for it to come on (an extension cord is too much electricity, so a battery pack is recommended).
MEASUREMENTS: Entire dollhouse measures approximately 30" tall x 24" long x 12 wide. Carrier available to your zip code than what is listed first. The "not as described" return option is not to be used to resolve damaged item cases.
