Dolly Ann Dollhouse by Macris Co. SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Lovely, hard to find dollhouse made by the Macris Company, in Toledo, Ohio, in 1929 or 1930. The house still retains it's original label which is pictured on the front base. The label states: Macris Company (portions of the letters are worn away on Macris); Dolly Ann House, Toledo, Ohio. This house is very similar to the Schoenhut houses produced during the same era. The dollhouse is made from wood and fiberboard with all original paint. The house is two rooms deep, meaning there are rooms one behind the other, which is quite unusual as most houses are generally 1 room deep. Additionally, there are two removable panels, the front and the back walls, which is also unusual as most houses generally only have the front removable. This means there is easy access to the rooms in the back. It is beautifully made with a green roof and a beautiful cream color exterior with red chimneys and red base. The windows have metal green shudders. The floors are painted a nice cream color and the walls are painted in wonderful pastel colors in the interior. Some of the rooms have their original curtains. The interior doorways are arched. The living room has a fireplace. The house is really well made and very attractive. The front of the house has a splendid door with beautiful trim. The sides and even the back panel of the house has windows, so there is additional detailing. The dimensions of the house is: 23 1/2" long at the base, 23" high without the chimneys, and 18 1/2" at the base. This is a great size, not too big and not too small. This house is in great condition with only very minor wear. Sturdily built and on the heavy side.
