It was built for a specific doll that resided in the bookshop and the scale is a monumental 2" to 1', so the house is five feet tall!
The family from whom I purchased the house had owned it for over 40 years and in that time, it had seen a lot of play.
The children could actually climb into the principal rooms and curl up in them, and over the years, all that platy took its toll, but it was so fortunate that no one ever painted over the two Sidney Burleigh murals that made me fall in love with this house.
I have done a lot of research on the house, its murals and the lady who commissioned it, which I will share at a later time, but I thought you might enjoy seeing a few photos of Greenaway House as it looks before restoration.
Buffalo Wild Wings, known for its namesake Buffalo, N. Popular “shareables” range from chili queso dip and nachos to fried pickles and mini corn dogs.By the mid-1930's the house cost 0 unfurnished, which is the equivalent of about 00 in today's money.How many people would spend 00 on an empty dollhouse for a child today?This is the mural that really got me excited when I saw the house.It is titled "Boylston House" which is a real historic home outside Boston.
