Jewelry Armoire Box.

I'm still on a search. Thanks to Elga. I could search on a much better way. She told me the name Jewelry Armoire Box.

Then I realized that the legs also tells you from which age the furniture can be.
The legs are made in Queen Anne style.

Queen Anne style furniture is a style of furniture design that developed during and around the reign of Anne, Queen of Great Britain (1702-1714).The cabriole leg has been described as "the most recognizable element" of Queen Anne furniture.[4] Cabriole legs were influenced by the designs of the French cabinetmaker André-Charles Boulle[5] and the Rococo style from the French court of Louis XV.

So I'm the proud owner of "a piece of antiques" for my dollhouse.... ;-)

But I still believe that the people that lived during the Victorian age used the antiques in the right way. 
Not the way I do. Using an antique covered dish for a flower arrangement or a closet that was used in the bedroom and now used as a cupboard. 

Thanks to my, still in the box, dollhouse I've become an new interpretation of my life. When someone told me, a few years ago,  to take a dollhouse as a hobby I would have laughed. But now I think, talk dollhouse, have friends and l love this hobby.

Even my husband is enthusiastic. He bought me the cupboard because he couldn't make that himself he said. So I showed him the blog of Elga. My husband is very handy. He's making all kind of things in our own house but thinking small was his problem. After visiting the blog he realized he could do that also.

When he has finished our staircase I think he will start with the dollhouse also.

  1. Lieve Dorien, wat leuk dat je nu weet dat het een prachtig antiek meubelstuk is (dankzij Elga). Zij kan het zéker weten, want ze maakt zelf prachtige meubels, zoals je al weet.
    En dan wil jij (net als ik overigens, want ik wist het ook niet ;)) "sokken en ondergoed" in dit antieke meubel doen :D, heerlijk toch? Ik vind het leuk om af en toe wat humor te zien op blogs en daar slaag jij echt in, Dorien!
    Een heel fijn weekend. Liefs, Ilona
