A Wonderful Bedroom Set Inlaid With Bone

I am in the process of putting up for sale on KT Miniatures some quite old and interesting dolls house furniture, all from the same vintage collection. My favourite of all the pieces that I have listed today is this little bedroom set that has been inlaid with bone in a cross design...it is quite exquisite and beautifully crafted.


The wardrobe doors open to reveal a little mirror and two tiny hangers on a rail....absolutely wonderful! The wardrobe measures 6 3/4" high x 4" wide x 2 1/4" deep so quite big for  1/12th scale.

Here you can see the inlay detail of the bone, it has been quite skillfully created. Wonder if there is some significance of the cross?
The bed measures 6" long x 4 1/4" wide and is sprung with vintage covered curtain rail rods.....truly delightful. I am of the opinion that although there is no makers mark, this set was probably manufactured commercially circa 1920s/1930s in Europe (the design of the bed suggests the art deco era).   There is no doubt that this is a quality set and would look fantastic in an old dolls house. Obviously if anyone out there has seen a set like this before or can even shed some light on the maker, I would love to hear from you.

It is now up for sale under the Antique 1/12th Bedroom section on KT Miniatures.

Here are two other old pieces from the same vintage collection that have been listed today. A very old wardrobe circa 1910-1920s with a lovely mirrored door. Plus a kitchen dresser from the same era (in fact it may even be late Victorian).  The old wardrobe can be found on the same page as the bedroom set above and the old dresser can be found on the Antique 1/12th Kitchen Page. There are lots more interesting vintage dolls house pieces to go up for sale over the next few days, all from the same collection.
