A request was made to see the doll armoire that matches the sleigh bed pictured HERE.
The armoire was made by the same woodworker, and bought as a set.
This is a detail of the top.
The piece measures 32: x 19.5"
The knobs are porcelain, they do line up - one door is slightly open.
The doors aren't closed tight because...the cupboard is FULL.
Doesn't it have great construction details?
Let's open the doors....
The kind of storage a doll can love.
Hanger space, slanted shoe rack, drawers and shelves.
For now a bonnet is on the hanger post.
Children's Needlework Kit on the shoe slant.
Spool Knitting on the shelf. Did you spool knit? I did. You can read about it HERE.
For those of you who want to give it a try here's a free Kindle Book from 1909 HERE.
Spool Knitting by Mary A. McCormack
I made Raggedy Ann and Andy in 1984, they are 3.5"
I remember a long fabric search for a tiny red ticking stripe.
The Children's Needlework and Embroidery Box is a kit with pre-stamped squares and floss.
I'd like to think they are intended for quilt squares.
The back of the box has hand writing,
"To Dorothy from Harvey"
Are you wondering about the quilts folded up on the armoire shelf?
These are a few of my old ones for the bed.
Next post - what do you say....pull them out and put them on the bed?
