Mildred Mahoney Dollhouse Museum
Here's most of the things that were up for auction. I doubt that anything remains of the museum. I'm not sure why the house couldn't have been sold and the museum items themselves donated to one of our larger museums so they could continued to be enjoyed.....
a peddlars stall
a room from the Woburn house
look at the lovely workmanship
the Kensington Kerr House c1809
The Tuesday House 1983 made of redwood and cedar
I took this photo so you can see how large these two actually are
Sea Captain's house
Mystery house c1895
this house is entirely made from match sticks
the imperial palace of Hawaii
House of Ipswich
Folk Art House
this is a dental cabinet
Each of the bricks on the house facade are made on individual pieces of wood
Belvedere house c1850
This is not actually a dollshouse. It was built as an architect's model and was on display at the Philadelphia Exposition in 1876.
this general store contains more than 5000 items
Castle dining room
A clothes mangle ...I'm not aware of ever having seen a modern miniature mangle
bead and shell furniture
I hope you've enjoyed this last view from the Mildred Mahoney dollhouse museum. These were all items up for auction and will now be in private hands.
