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. Also listing the inventory I bought out of a miniatures shop that closed that carried artisan and high quality miniatures.
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) and can hold items up to two weeks in order to combine shipping with any other wins.
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 from Norma and Fred Kowalke's personal dollhouse.
Artisan made hat measuring 2 1/4" long x 1 7/8" wide x 1" high.
Cream colored straw trimmed with lace along the brim, pink embroidered flowers (there is a butterfly on one flower :o), curly vines, a white fancy feather and cream satin ribbon.
Last photo shows it with other items I am listing today that are NOT INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION ~ this auction is for what is in my description above only. The HAT STAND IS NOT INCLUDED.
Has a few spots where the glue that was used on some of the items turned brown.
Still a very pretty piece.
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.
PLEASE NOTE that I can only hold auction wins for two weeks in order to combine shipping.
