Two Rare c1900s Erhard & Sohne Dolls House Miniatures

It is not often that these rare c1900s Erhard & Sohne dolls house miniatures come into KT Miniatures however last week I was lucky to obtain not just one, but two delightful examples from this German company. Unsurprisingly they were snapped up pretty quick almost as soon as they went up for sale but I thought I would show you them on here anyway. 
The tiny ormolu style metal Erhard & Sohne mantel clock is quite ornate and in a remarkably super condition even though it has been so obviously played with. To think that this is over 100 years old too! It is entirely in original condition, complete with blue clock face and glass front.
The clock can be found in the Erhard & Sohne Company Catalogue as No. 8355.
It measures 2" high x 2 1/8" wide x 1" depth.

 Then there is this wonderful metal Art Nouveau Erhard & Sohne Console & Mirror Frame. The original mirror is long gone and would have simply slotted into the grooves at the would not be too difficult to fit a replacement mirror.
But isn't this wonderful!? The detail is exquisite and most definitely so very Art Nouveau in style.
It appears in the Erhard & Sohne Company Catalogue as No. 3439 and measures 5 1/2" from highest point to bottom x 4" at widest point.

It may be a while before any more Erhard & Sohne items of this calibre come along again!!!
