View Catalog Item - Theriault's Antique Doll Auctions
A 17th century Dutch dollhouse in a tortoiseshell cabinet. This was not for children to play with , but a very expensive hobby of Petronella Oortman. She had everythnig in it custom made by craftsmen and artists , real paintings, real china , it cost her a fortune 20.000-30.000 Guilders wich was as much as a real Amsterdam canalhouse at the time. AMAZING if you take a look at all the little treasures in it.
