Antique Maternity Room

Made in Germany ca. 1690-1720. This maternity room was probably a gift for a new mother. The detailed bead-work sets this one apart from similar room-boxes of its time.

The doll's faces are wax. Their dress, beds and the curtains are silk. The walls are also lined in fabric. Size: 43cm x 30cm x 25cm. The collector paid £4,400 for this room-box.

the beadwork is lovely; the colors of the room must have been amazing when it was first created. the textiles are a lovely shade of champagne now, but they must have been very clean and stunning at one time. it's amazing so much of it has survived! what a wonderful find.
