Won it on eBay and picked it 425 miles away yesterday! This is biggest house I've done since RGT's Painted Lady and am so excited!
Does anyone have any knowledge about the early to mid 1990s Walmer dollhouse line? I'm rehabbing a Walmer house that I purchased and built in 1994 but I can't remember what it was called. Possibly it was called a Brookshire. My memory is that is was part of a series where the house was basically the same but you could order different porches, additions and dormers. The RGT New Concept series seems really similar so might have been something that RGT kept when they acquired the Walmer dollhouses. My house shares a floorplan with the New Concept 1000 series.
Anyone have any info for me?
While searching for dollhouse kits locally (which includes my entire state! Woah!) I found somebody selling this already built but (a little) damaged Foxhall Manor by Real Good Toys.
The shingles are broken, but terrible so they are coming off. The conservatory was painted a bright yellow so I'm going to both tone It down with some white paint, and place a very high wainscotting trim on the room. On the room It looks like spilled white paint (or maybe? glue). There are broken stairs, rails in the Grand Hall. It looks like real sized carpet was used.
All I can see however is The Potential: I've got this hand crafted doll by an I.G.M.A. Artist named Eliza and this is going to be her home. I'm thinking of painting the roof black and later shingling it. The house either a dusky lavender or a dusky rose pink. Black trim. Dark grey and deep cream for accent colors.
Only Artisan pieces and furniture inside this home! I cannot wait to start collecting, but I first must finish some Layaways in 1:24 scale. Already an Artisan member here has offered me a stunning rug that will have the pride of place in one of the rooms.
It's going to take years, but it will be beautiful when it's finished.
It needs Help and LOVE! But it is only: $40! I'm stunned.
Going to hopefully pick it up next week. My friend is going to be taking me over to get it. I know that it is HUGE (it comes with the Conservatory and the two-story addition, but the staircases are missing, plus the (looking at the front) left side front-opening door.
I've measured my desk: it fits! But only a foot more in length is available to work. I'm cleaning up my Craft Room this week and getting ready to bring my find home hopefully next week.
I'm so THRILLED!
There are Members that find these incredible Dollhouses for incredible prices, but I NEVER dreamed that I could ever be one.
