The Stettheimer Dollhouse

Carrie Walter Stettheimer (1869-1944) developed the famous dollhouse over the course of 19 years, creating many of the furnishings and decorations by hand, weaving together the fashion and style of New York's high society in the early twentieth century to create one of the finest dollhouses in existence. The styles of decoration vary from room to room, yet the wallpapers, furniture, and fixtures are all characteristic of the period following World War I. The most astounding aspect of the Stettheimer Dollhouse is its one-of-a-kind art gallery, featuring miniature works from renowned avant-garde artists of the 1920s. The result is a magnificent work of art, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York. The Stettheimer Dollhouse is roughly 28 inches tall, 50 inches long, and 35 inches wide.
