Hacker Dolls' House with an Elevator
This house opens from the front and reveals four rooms. On the bottom floor is a room to the right which has an enclosed elevator. (Like a real elevator, you walk into it and it is like a room within itself). It even has a dial above the door to tell what floor you are going to. The interior of the room is very nice with moldings etc.
A crank on the side of the house moves the elevator up!)
The house has a staircase in case the elevator doesn't accommodate the people in this building! The two rooms on the left side of the house are framed out on the walls with nice moldings. The rooms look more formal! You could do a formal parlor and bedroom on the second floor or do it as an "antique shop" where people come to buy pieces!!
There are nice dormer windows on the roof with two chimneys too. There is a balcony on the second floor and quoining on the corners on the front.
The house measurements: 40 ½"tall (to the top of the roof) x 28"w. x 16 1/2 "d.

The Glass House
As a recent buyer of this house, I'm not familiar with its history or its actual age. The last time I saw this house, it was displayed at Lucy's Dolls' House Shop in Camden, Maine, when I visited a number of years ago. Each time I approach this house in my living room to get a better view, I discover additional openings or details I hadn't noticed before. All of the ornamentation is carved wood, painted gold. The carving work is so amazing I have photographed each of these fine pieces that you see painted gold. Incidentally, since the back of the house is made exactly like the front façade of the house, one enters through the front door (first floor) or you'd enter through the same door in the back. The side panels of windows pull out to enter the second floor on both the right side and left side.
Beveled glass windows are found throughout the house. There are long narrow ones, some have wooden frames over the windows that look like they are paneled. There are even some square windows!
The roof is framed in dark wood that matches the rest of the house. Glass slanted panels are set in –one long one in the front and back. The sides have smaller panels of slanted glass. The very top of the house has a flat board to support the grand statue of a woman holding a pelican! The last photo shows her foot resting on a ball. The carving is just the finest carving I have ever seen with the detail of her hair and facial features!
Please feel free to contact me for any other questions about this outstanding house. firstname.lastname@example.org
Measurements: 27- ½"h.; add 10" for the carved lady on top of the roof x 33" width x 17" depth.
