Eisgruber Stueble - Little German dolls' room

German dolls' room or "Puppenstube" ("Stueble" is the diminutive form of "Stube" or room). Home-made, age uncertain but possibly 1950s or earlier. The room appears to be made from old drawer-fronts, or something else that had bevelled edges. Overall the wood is very dense and hard, even though the floor looks like pine, suggesting that the materials used for the room are quite old. Apart from its convenient small size, one of the things that really attracted me to this room, which came unfurnished, were the unusual pictures on the walls - two are definitely by the German illustrator Elsa Eisgruber (1887-1968) and the third is also an original choice for a dolls' room.
