New home found for it.
Sat it on the table and had a good look.Not sure the roof is original and there are some replacement pieces on the front as well as a few old woodworm holes.

I've looked in my book now and I see what you mean about the roof, it would have had a mansard roof with attic windows. I see too that this model (or one of the variations of it) was shown in the 1912 catalogue of the 'Au Nain Bleu" toy shop in Paris, so do you think it dates from around that date? I'm assuming you have this information but message me if you haven't and I can help with photos or info from Swantje's book.

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately I do not have Swantjes book- sounds like it needs to go on my wish list.

General information on Swantjes book, just put Christian Hacker into E Bay and her book will come up, for those who may be puzzled on how to buy it.

Yes - a mansard roof would make the proportions look correct - right now it does look a bit odd - but I am sure that you could make a replacement.

Would this be Victorian or a little later?
