Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dollhouse fanciers will be delighted with this book and its hundreds of color illustrations of factory-made dollhouses dating from the mid-19th century through the 1970s. Drawn from private and museum collections, these examples all hail from the three major dollhouse manufacturing centers during that periodAmerica, Great Britain, and Germany. Values given are based upon the author's estimates, and tips are provided on what might add to or detract from the overall value of each dollhouse. Additionally, there is documentation on metal, plastic, wood, and cardboard furniture, accessories, and dollhouse-sized dolls, as well as brief histories of the manufacturers. A final section lists dealers, relevant periodicals, and museums in the United States specializing in dollhouses. A sequel to the authors' American Dollhouses and Furniture of the 20th Century (Schiffer, 1995), this book is essential for all collectibles/decorative arts collections.Margarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
