Vintage Gottschalk Dollhouse

Hello all! I have purchased my first vintage house. It was made in the 1930s. 1:12 scale. It will take time to restore but I am excited to get started. As you may know from earlier posts I made a replica of a vintage house but this one is the real deal.
I will be repairing/renovating it but also respecting its vintage beauty.







I think it may have been based on this smaller scale German house from 1930 but made in 1:12.
This house is very small, but the similarities are amazing. UPDATE May 5 - I have discovered my dollhouse is a Gottschalk but have not found a replica just yet.



There is something magical about adding a worn beauty to your collection and nurturing it. Each crack, water stain, and loose nail tells a story. If you take the time to listen the little house will tell you what it needs. :)
