Hand-Painted Bunk Beds and Furniture (SOLD)

Details of each item

BEDS: Manufactured in America by Strombecker in the 1950s. They are the only hand-painted ones we have ever seen, so assume that someone long ago applied the charming little motifs. They can be used either as matching twin beds, or as a single bunk bed since they come apart easily. The beds measure 10.5in/25cm long and are 9in/23 high when stacked.

BEDCLOTHES: Handmade striped mattresses, flower-trimmed sheets, and eiderdowns with applique work. Flowered pillows with ribbon trim. All bedclothes are hand-washable.

TABLE AND CHAIRS: Charmingly hand-painted with Pennsylvania Dutch motifs to suit the style of the chairs and table; believed to be of German manufacture. Comes with dolly's vintage tea set and basket of alphabet blocks (new). Fragility note: Please take care with the thin legs of the chairs.

RUG: Fine wool edged with flower trim.

WALLS: Covered in modern wrapping paper or covered in handmade, hand-printed paper (please see both options, and choose your favourite). Papers have been mounted on two pieces of 5mm thick A3 foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42x29.5cm or 11 5/8 x16 3/8in.

DOLLS: Chosen from our selection of vintage dolls. Please see the relevant section of our website for a bigger choice. These tomboy twins in football outfits are Lesney Ginny dolls from the 1970-1980s, and feature long, comb-able hair.
