Still listing items from my trip out East where I bought the remainder of the late Fred and Norma Kowalke dollhouse collection and inventory. The Kowalke's were well known miniature artists and traveled the dollhouse circuit for several months out of the year for the past thirty or so years, selling not only their own creations but also those of other artisans. Some of the items I will be listing over the next few months (yes, there is THAT much) is not only from their own personal collection but also items from other artisans.
I believe most of it is 1:12 scale but please look at the photos with the dime for comparison and also the measurements in the description below.
All items will start with a very LOW opening bid and NO reserve.
I am happy to combine shipping (pay highest shipping for ONE item and any other wins will ship along for NO additional charge when billed on the same invoice).
I will be listing other items (aside from miniatures) in between so please check back often as I WILL try to list as many miniature auctions as possible.
This is a VERY nicely made desk and chair.
Desk was made by FRED KOWALKE (is signed underneath) and measures 2 3/4" wide x 2" deep x 3" high. Has two cubbyholes on either side. Top of cubbyholes and desk are a dark wood and the rest was painted a colonial blue/green color with handpainted pink flowers in a stencil design as shown in my photos. There are even brass drawer pulls (drawer does NOT open) and a keyhole.
Glued on top is a brass inkwell with a feather pen and a book decorated with pink ribbon rosettes.
The chair is a dark wood and measures 3" high (1 1/2" inches to the top of the seat in case you want to seat a doll there).
Chair is signed and dated "DON CNOSSEN '87"
No condition issues ~ VERY VERY NICE!
Shipping is your choice of USPS First Class or Priority mail with Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is covered by me at no additional cost.
Illinois residents must pay 9.75% sales tax.
Please wait for my combined invoice to pay as I cannot save you money on shipping if items are paid separately. The invoice must come from ME in order to receive a discount (you cannot combine it). I cannot refund for shipping overpayment AFTER you have paid.
