This is the FANTASY HOUSE Christmas Ornament, a miniature replica of an 1890 FRENCH DOLL HOUSE made by The Hampton Collection. It is finished in HIGH GLOSS 24 KT Gold (photos do it no justice) and the level of detail is extraordinary. It captures all the architectural elements and provides a peek at the interior through the windows on the front side. The back of the ornament depicts the detailed decorations of furniture and wallpaper popular during the this period. Even the family members are included within the various rooms. Its heirloom quality will allow you to pass it along to succeeding generations of your family. It has never been displayed and stored in its own velvet lined box in a smoke free home. It measures approximately 2 7/8 by 3 1/8 inches.Included with the ornament is a paper that tells more about the house which is believed to have come from the estate of Margaret Woodbury Strong and is in the Strong Museum in Rochester, New York. Thanks for looking and checking out my other auctions in this collection to save on shipping.
