To bring some Christmas cheer to this rather down-hearted but wonderful site I thought I would post a link to https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=deutsches+weihnachten+in+den+20er+jahren&tbm=isch&tbs=rimg:CXji9--6aSZyIjg7Ynj6jU0TzSU741FlUEajBd01Xx6t6xTY9ba_17jpaG1cysaqEd-5XzTg5suCo4eKxuTwj9J1JlCoSCTtiePqNTRPNEcb8bjNDWJ9XKhIJJTvjUWVQRqMRk8XE6cXM9BYqEgkF3TVfHq3rFBHZIgAVJ_1v6JSoSCdj1tr_1uOlobEQm0tr4xDx4zKhIJVzKxqoR37lcRGuRA3y4hUXoqEgnNODmy4Kjh4hHG_1G4zQ1ifVyoSCbG5PCP0nUmUEWjQXUbO4aH3&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiK1MC-i5bYAhUKWBQKHSepByIQ9C96BAgAEB0&biw=1094&bih=511&dpr=1.25" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">some photos of Christmas in 1920s Germany.   There are three wonderful houses (well, one is a puppenstube) in the first few lines of photos.


I was wondering whether any of them are commercial, and therefore recognisable or do people think they are all home-made ones?


And if you click on my signature it will take you to Christmas Greetings from Small Worlds.

A merry Christmas to one and all!


(I just hope the links work this time!)

Okay, I see the first link is doolally again and the signature works. Both done exactly the same way, so riddle me that one please!

Was it a link to a page of Google Images, Cestina? If so, it might be that the hyperlink function doesn't like that. What a shame when you are trying to lift our spirits!


I have just searched 'Deutsches weihnachte in den 20er jaren' on Google Images and only one dolls' house came up in the photos. That was a photo from Pinterest and it can be seen here:

Yes Zoe, it was such a link. They work perfectly on my blog, and on the Chalet School website, so I have no clue why they don't here, especially as in the preview stage everything looks fine.  


The one you found is indeed one of the houses.   I'll now try a straight copy and paste, ugly though it is, and by-pass the link icon above...: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=deutsches+weihnachten+in+den+20er+jahren&tbm=isch&tbs=rimg:CXji9--6aSZyIjg7Ynj6jU0TzSU741FlUEajBd01Xx6t6xTY9ba_17jpaG1cysaqEd-5XzTg5suCo4eKxuTwj9J1JlCoSCTtiePqNTRPNEcb8bjNDWJ9XKhIJJTvjUWVQRqMRk8XE6cXM9BYqEgkF3TVfHq3rFBHZIgAVJ_1v6JSoSCdj1tr_1uOlobEQm0tr4xDx4zKhIJVzKxqoR37lcRGuRA3y4hUXoqEgnNODmy4Kjh4hHG_1G4zQ1ifVyoSCbG5PCP0nUmUEWjQXUbO4aH3&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiK1MC-i5bYAhUKWBQKHSepByIQ9C96BAgAEB0&biw=1094&bih=511&dpr=1.25


Well that seems to have worked at least.....

Oh, lovely! They look commercially made to me. I don’t recognise any of them specifically but all three have a look of the Hackers and Gottschalks in my reference books. Looking at the surroundings of the lucky children who received them, they appear be from wealthy families so I guess there was no need for dad or grandad (or in this case, Papa oder Opa!) to knock a dolls’ house up in the shed....


I wonder how many children are excitedly awaiting the arrival of a dolls’ house from Father Christmas this year, or maybe they’ve had their day?

My goodness, those parties look a great deal more glamarous than anything that Greconville can conjure up, however hard they try.
