Asphaltum Tiny Furniture #188-38 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Fantastic very early asphaltum and painted tin tiny dollhouse furniture. I have never come across any asphaltum furniture so tiny. Incredible detailing on such a small size with impressed designs. The chairs are a mere 1 1/4" high and the side table is 1 3/8" long and 7/8" high. Beautifully detailed with impressed designs and piercing on the back of the chairs, all three pieces are matching. The top of the table is tin, painted cream and outlined with blue. The seats of the chairs are painted maroon with an outling of yellow. The sides and legs of all three pieces and the back rests of the chairs, which are pierced, are washed with asphaltam. Incredible workmanship, especially in such a tiny size. Pictured with a tiny peg-wooden doll who is 1" high (doll is not for sale), to show as size comparison. Also pictured with a Victorian dollhouse lady (5 1/8" high--doll not for sale) and a 1" scale early table (sold separately) to show how tiny the 3-piece set is. Lovely condition with no breaks--the top of the table shows some aging and a little bit of paint loss. c. 1870's.
