Muffie Loves Bonnie Books !
Rare Keystone Doll Furniture set made in 1956,
complete in box with extra Keystone vanity bench .
The set pictured sold for $12.98 back then!
The company competed with Strombecker
and the attention to detail is superb.
Even the front bedposts have little medallions.
The swivel vanity has a mirror that has discolored over time.
There are metal bars inside the vanity
that let you open the vanity skirt!
The corner black chair is gold stenciled and very rare.
It came in both maple or ebony as you see here.
The wardrobe is deep Wedgwood blue
with lovely gold Chinese type stenciling.
Here is how the company describes the set:
Set contains: 1. A bed which the company describes as "Beautiful natural four poster with
turned legs , ball feet, fluted foot rail and brass rail bolts. Equipped with box for spring,
dust ruffles, loose padded mattress, boxed spread and pillow out of hand blocked high
quality cloth in colonial design". 2. A chest, "charming natural pine 3 drawer chest with
ball feet, brass drawer handles and plates. All corners and edges molded in beautiful
Colonial designs, a perfect miniature". 3. Wardrobe, "Lovely Williamsburg blue two
door wardrobe with Oriental gilt design and fitted with a sliding clothes rack." 4. Chair,
"unusual corner chair with ball feet finished in black and gilt seat patter in typical
Colonial occasional chair style . Half circle back rest to support the doll in sitting
position". 5. Vanity, "a practical vanity with tilting Mirror in maple. Fitted with colored
sheet plastic top and ruffled shirt to match the bedspread. Skirts swing open in front to
accept doll in sitting position."
My Mother had similar taste and this set reminds me of her
bedroom back in the 50's!
Stenciling was a hobby she enjoyed.
The original box to this set, is shown below.
Muffie is hoping to read "Three Little Kittens" to her
new parrot and black poodle (missing Steiff tag) .
(Thanks so much Ginny Linda!)
