Gottschalk Red Roof Dollhouse Model #5991 #197-30 Sold

Status: Sold
Wonderful dollhouse in beautiful condition made by the German firm of Gottschalk in Germany in 1921. The model number is #5991, written in pencil underneath as shown, and it is pictured in "Mortiz Gottschalk 1892-1931" Reprint of Catalog Pages on page 199. Lovely example of Gottschalk's work, with porch in the front, gabled roof, 2 chimneys, front opens up to reveal 2 rooms inside, and there is also an attic room which opens up in the back as shown totaling 3 rooms. Original papers and paint, original hooks, and traces of the original flowers in the flower box at top window, original curtains can be seen in the photo. Lovely color scheme of red roof, rust color base, deep beige walls, cream color and deep beige trim with the typical Gottschalk green front door outlined in white with door handle. Very charming to display on it's own, or to furnish with small furniture. Size: 13 1/2" to top of chimney, 12 5/8" wide, and 9 1/2" wide at base including the stairs. It is very difficult to find these early houses in such fine condition.
