Not a dolls house, this time, but this wonderful book I discovered on the Puppenhausmuseum website:
This appears among the 1950s dolls houses, on a recently added page called Papier (Paper), which also has photos of 1950s furniture to make from cardboard. This book, published by Pestalozzi Verlag in 1958, shows a real dolls house (I'm not sure of the maker), peopled with Erna Meyer dolls!
The woman standing by the front door is almost identical to one currently in my Triang 52 house, though she has rather more hair:
The woman looking out of the window, and also dealing with an obstinate child later in the story:
must be Dianne Praeger's sister! And I'm sure some of my Erna Meyer children are just as obstinate.
I've seen a woman similar to the one standing outside the garage, ready to go out in her overcoat, listed on ebay once or twice. She's pretty rare, and goes for high prices.
The furniture and the dolls house itself are pretty cool too, but to have a whole book illustrated with Erna Meyer dolls! Wow! And one great thing about a book like this is that it dates all the dolls and furniture, probably to a year or two prior to publication. I suspect this book is much rarer than the people and furnishings within it, but maybe I'll get lucky some day, now I know to keep an eye out for it!
