Since Schönherr and Gottschalk game from the same factory (if I'm not mistaken) I could send you an example of how the window should look like. My house has one left that I will reproduce. It is funny to see how it amateuristic it was made btw. Some slat glues to another because it didn't fit perfectly


They came from the same region but were separate businesses, but nevertheless there are similarities between their houses (and many other German houses too).

I think the window left in your house is a sliding one? And I know that this house had fixed windows, I'm just not sure how the glass was held in place....

They're in good condition too. Just curious, would there have been windows on the house originally?


Sarah, I've just been sent an image from a 2012 auction (Ladenburger Spielzeugauktionen) where a house identical to mine was sold (and I've added the new information to my descriptions in this album). The image clearly shows that the windows had a sheet of thin glass or perspex inserted (presumably glued or tacked from the inside). There was a thin white horizontal line of paint running across the top of the panes, but no wooden frames or anything fancy. So if I wanted to, I could try to replicate those.
