http://lilsdolls.se/ about Dolls and Dollshouse

I think this is a fun little story 
with reference to Droras Bavarian Furniture.

Not long ago Drora at blog-link: Droras minimundo
publisheda post of what she called “Bavarian
Furniture” that she had received as a gift.

I was sure that I had seen some of these furniture
before, so I looked in one of my old catalogues from
year 1998 and I found dollhouse furniture in the same
series as her Bavarian furniture, from year 1998.
Some of them looks like hers.They were sold by a
company for hobby material called "Direct Trade AB"
here in Sweden. It is a hobby/Internet and postorder

I think that it is fun that I remembered them and that I
have saved the catalogue all these years. But these
furniture  are special I must say. So it seems that
these kind of furniture was sold in more then one c
ountry. Don´t know the manufacturing country.

The style with the flowers and the patterns on the
furniture looks like the Swedish real sized old country
furniture called “Allmoge–Furniture”, from the 18th
and 19th centuries. These kind of furniture were build
and painted in a lot of villages and places in the
countryside by different local carpenters and
painters in Sweden at that time. All the painters had to
here own style, patterns and colours.They are now
collecting objects.

I know that a lot of the real sized furniture has been
bought by collectors.“all over the world” at antique
auctions. They love them. That is now a problem for
antique lovers in Sweden, because to many furniture
has left Sweden andthey are now in other countries.
A lot of them (for example), in the USA.

  1. Lil, You have done a wonderful work of research. Thank you so much for sharing this information. My little furniture do look like the one in the museum. What a great end to my story.


  2. Thank´s Drora
    I did not have to do much resurch because I love antiques. I always watch antique roadshows on TV from Sweden, USA and Great Britain and I read antique magazines now and then. It is so interesting and fun with all the furniture, toys and all other old things.

    (I also have visited all our museums and places that have antique dollshouses (not Allmoge) and have taking photos of them when they were kind to let me do that.)

  4. Hej Mona
    Ja jag har sett hennes blog. Har lagt mig som följare för jag tycker den är trevlig. Tycker hon möblerat jättefint med dessa möbler. Det ser inbjudande ut i hennes blå rum. Hon har en del andra annorlunda möbler också

  5. Gracias por el trabajo de investigacion que has hecho, son unos fantasticos muebles.
    besitos ascension

    Me encanta pasar por tu blog y aprender.

  6. Kul att se. Jag har några möbler som jag köpt på direct trade och har alltid gillat Lundbys allmoge möbler. Påminner om dalarna och min mormor tycker jag =) Så nu har jag börjat samla dem med =) Hannah
