Elga got a very nice present. A great book. She refers to the book on her blog. This is  a wonderful book about furniture. Just click here.

Would you like to create wonderful furniture please refer to this book. I'm completely astonished about this website. 

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 AndrĂ©-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.
