Tiny Picture of Silent Movie Star Crane Wilbur

Status: Available Price: $110.00
This is such a rare and unusual item for the dollhouse. It is a tiny picture of a then-famous silent movie star, Crane Wilbur, who was best known as the leading man of The Perils of Pauline. Crane Wilbur was born in 1886 and passed away at age 86 in 1973. He was also a prolific writer and director of 67 movies from silent films to talkies. There is a large write-up about him on Wikipedia. This tiny picture is perfect for the c. 1910 to 1920's dollhouse. The picture is on brass with a raised brass frame around it. He is shown in profile with his name underneath the portrait. I have never come across this type of early dollhouse picture before, and it is a rare, superb item. Width is slightly under 1/2" and height is slightly over 1/2". This item is meant for the type of dollhouse collector who seeks out unique and rare items.
