Here is my charming "Ivy Cottage" that was made by the German Wagner firm. With the "Ivy Cottage" over the front porch it was most likely made for the English trade. It is a small house but it has alot visual rewards with its stenciled timbering and variety of windows. Come on in.......

Here is the interior of my "Ivy Cottage"- a little house by the German firm of Wagner. The interior papers are all original. This house was the perfect "home" for the very lovely and rare German Bing tin lithographed furniture that I've had waiting for years until I could find the house it needed to move in to. I hope you enjoy it! The furniture was found in South America and I'm thinking that it made its way there when some of the Germans flew out of the country at the end of WWII.
