The following few entries are in response to a question by fellow blogger Rebecca about Australia's version of Little Homemaker.
The firm that made the USA version was Plasco (Plastic Art Toy Corp. of America). Dollhouse funiture was first manufactured around 1944 and in 1948 you could purchase a whole room box for $1 !!
Some versions came with a box of furniture and a 45 rpm record (see below).
I never knew they made similar pieces in Australia so I thank Rebecca for sharing that info and the lovely photos as well!
I have a bathroom for sale--scroll all the way down-- if anyone is interested.
Enjoy the professional pictures that come from the pages of American Dollhouses and Furniture from the 20th Century by Dian Zillner.
