Mexican Doll House
Mexican Doll House
Mexican Doll House The small mansion, believed to be is a copy of a house which once stood in Puebla, was discovered in an antique shop in Puebla in the spring of 1977. Although the facade of the house has some Moorish features, it is French in flavor, a reflection of many full-sized mansions in Puebla and Mexico City built over the years after the arrival of the troops of Napoleon III in 1862. In 1922, the house was wired and redecorated, giving the interior some feeling of the 1920s. The Paige automobile in the driveway is, along with a pair of early radio towers, from this period. Fully furnished, the house contains a drawing room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bath, music room, and chapel. A section of the removable facade covers each of these. The interiors are furnished primarily with fruitwood tables and chairs. Of particular note is the carved master bedroom suite done in the European style set against French-style panel wallpaper in pale pistachio green and ivory. Typical of the '90s, the house has German marble elaborate beadwork fringe. The house is generously accessorized with milk glass, soft metal and porcelain decorative art objects. The imaginative roof garden with aviary, gazebo, various bird houses and four-awninged art gallery lends tremendous animation to the facade as does the working exterior enclosed elevator that passes up through the three-story filigree stairwell. The house comes complete with six dolls dating from 1890-1920.

We used to have dinner together in the dining room. We had our places at the table, but we eventually migrated to the kitchen. One wall of the dining room is filled with cookbooks, one has family photos, another a Vuillard poster, my favorite guy. As is common in these old houses there is a big bay window on the alley side. The dining room table is one with lions head feet. It was my great grandmother's first table when she went housekeeping, as my grandmother put it. This is her sewing machine. My grandmother told a story that when she was little, this was in Alden PA,near Wilkes-Barre, they got their Christmas presents at church. You didn't have a tree in your house, all the children's present were hung on the church tree. In the weeks leading up to Christmas her mother was busy sewing dolls clothes for her present. When they went to church the Sunday before Christmas my grandmother saw the doll with the dress her mother had been making and blurted out in the middle of the service THAT'S MY DOLL. I remember Grandma Bryan sewing on this machine. She made me doll clothes too. I was seven when she died.
