I love the dollhouse just because of all the details mentioned. It's one of my favorites. So much to look at.

Hi Lisa,
I saw your request for the back of the Doll House. I will send it to you.

That's really interesting. Same as the Pillar Box with all the inside detail........but I have never looked at the back of the Dolls House. Somehow I always feel that the doll is out of proportion to the actual solid .....or vice versa........ I'm sure you will understand what I am trying to say!!!!!!!

Thanks, KK, for your great photo. smile.gif Your camera captured a detail you can't easily see with the naked eye. If you look at the window in the attic, there is a pattern in the upper, arched portion of the pane, as if it might be stained glass. I re-examined my solid, and there is definitely some sort of pattern in the pane. Amazing!

I bought the Doll House out of frustration over a lost ebay auction (ballet slippers) at my local department store three years ago.

I've thought it very expensive but then I saw the described lovely details on the back and now it is one of my darling solid. smile.gif

You are welcome. I'm amazed at the intricate details (hidden) on this piece.

Did you ever notice the backs of some of the older solids?

The detail on many of the older solids is magnificent, but I never noticed the pattern before in the Heirloom Enamel. blink.gif

This thread has really got me thinking now. tongue.gif You know how each Palazzo is unique, well I think this must also be the case with the Jeweler's Treasure. I believe each marbelized top has its own unique design (striation?). The one in Roselyn's book is different from the one in the data base, and mine is different from both of them. If you have one, check it out.

Yes, Martha mine too is different, this is fun!

Have you ever noticed the oak leaves and acorns bordering this cameo?

Did you know that often acorns and Oak leaves are popular designs, particularly during patriotic periods?

I have two Parma Paisleys. both have the Ivory,Blue & Red feathers. Happened to place them side by side today and was surprised to see that one has the very bright red as pictured in the Gerson book but on the other one the red is very, very dark. Anyone else have dark red on this solid?

Also, only noticed the neat design near the toe of the cowboy boot. Can't believe I hadn't seen it previously.

Many of the enamels are really splendid when you look at them closely. Several shades of the same color.

Lisa, this topic is great fun and most informative.

Phyllis,

I don't have the red Parma Paisley.

Yup the toe of the cowboy boot is cool, it was in our last contest. wink.gif


Did you ever notice the flowers on the Flowering Tangerine solid? The big ones at the top look like Jack in the Pulpits.

Is it a tangerine or a pumpkin?

Here are more examples of solids with work under the enamel, als both these solids have the same edge and clasp and also the same pattern on top-the circles:
