Sewing Table with Divided Drawers and Notions #198-26 SOLD

Status: Sold
Fantastic Victorian sewing table with so much detailing especially at the center column supports with 3 braces coming together to form the support column which then rests on a separate platform with 4 decorative architectural protrusions (quite unusal as I have never seen this type of treatment before on dollhouse furniture). Ending in 4 splayed feet. Beautiful piece and the best part is the drawer which opens to reveal numberous compartments, each edged in black enamel and the center portion has mauve colored velvet with a thin red ribbon holding a Gerlach pair of miniature scissors. Besides the faux scissors, there is a Gerlach miniature thimble, a bristol glass pin holder edged with red dots, and 2 thread rolls--all rare accessories. The scale of this is slightly larger, I believe it is 1 1/4" scale. Height is 3 1/2", 3 3/4" wide, and 2 3/4" deep. Beautiful condition with no breaks or repairs. This would make a lovely piece in a room box or a larger scale dollhouse. The original knob handle is also by Gerlach. German made c. 1880, from light cherry wood. An exceptional piece, one I have never had before. An example of this sewing table is pictured in Flora Gill Jacobs' "The Small World of Dolls' Houses" on page 103.
