Very like full-size German houses from the early 1950s
After I first posted this album I wrote to diePuppenstubensammlerin, probably the best expert on 1950s German dolls' houses, and she has confirmed that this is definitely a Schönherr house. She thinks it was most likely produced between 1953 and 1958. These houses are difficult to date, as there is a dearth of contemporary catalogues and advertising. I think her dating is pretty good though. We live in a house built in 1957, and it is not dissimilar to this. When we bought it, it hadn't been touched since 1957 and had the plain windows, boxy balcony, and a front door with metal (lattice) decoration all so typical of German houses of the period.

How delightful that this lovely house has similarities to your own home. A couple of the DH cottages I have resemble not my house but local vernacular 19th century architecture and I love them for it.


Yes Brooksey, it is lovely when dolls' houses strike a chord like that. My Triang 50 reminds me of houses in the neighbourhood I grew up in and I find it comforting to look at for that reason.
