German Toy Piano      The Judy McDonald Collection
Elaborately decorated, and simple at the same time, this doll-sized German toy piano is an endearing accent piece for a doll setting.  It is all of wood, except for the metal hammers for sound, and the front panel has a colorful classic illustration of a group of muses dancing.  Pounding on the keys produces a quite raw and out-of-tune sound, adding to the charm of this humble but decorative piece.  10" L  x  8" T  x   6 3/4" W

Sleep, Queen Ann Style
What a great piece for your 18th century baby house or early doll settings!  Shown here is an antique wood canopy bed that has been expertly recovered with antique damask fabric in a regal gold, with antique trim and tassels for accents.  There is a bedspread, a long cushion, a fitted canopy cover, and four corners of gathered curtains on all three sides.  The headboard is as high as the canopy and also covered in the same fabric.
Underneath you can see the linen, highly stuffed mattress and the firm fabric slats that hold all in place.  The bed is 8" long, 6" wide, and 8" tall including the cover on top.  What little early wooden dolls would not love to put this in their bedroom and maybe include a furry friend taking a nap?

Art Nouveau
Bronze Display Cabinet
Opens on Two Sides!

A French masterpiece in bronze and beveled glass with the fluid, sweeping botanical lines that ruled the art and design world at the end of the 19th century.  The Art Nouveau movement put nature and a human aspect into art, furnishings, fashion, architecture and everyday life, everywhere you looked!  This display cabinet makes for an extraordinary way to show a special collectible like a doll, of course!
And on top of it being just remarkable in design, weight, and workmanship, it has beveled glass doors that open on the front and back.  The front is determined by a higher rise in the ornamental bronze molded detail that sweeps across the top of the piece.  It has raised feet that continue the bold, dramatic design all the way to the inflated bottom edge.  It is 14 1/4" tall overall, 8" wide and 6 1/"deep.  Visiting from the all bisque page is a 7" Sustrac mignonette, not included.
