More Information about My New Keystone Cape Code Dollhouse

It seems that I really did get a great deal the other day when I was compelled to buy a rather neglected dollhouse.  It turns out that it is a nice make, called Keystone of Boston.  It is missing two window panes, which I am sure reduces its desirability, but Keystones are very sought after antiques.  Keystone stopped manufacturing dollhouses in 1953 OR my version was sold at FAO Schwartz in the 1960's, depending on what source you use.  They are made of masonite, out of which my old Fisher Price homes and buildings were constructed.  It is missing a chunk of the front door, a chimney, a chimney cover, and a few supporting brads, but over all, it is is excellent condition.  Every time I sneak away to work on it, I'm amazed at my luck!  Terrific!


  1. Good for you!

    Your's is similar shape to mine, when purchased:


    The chimney in the ceter is actually a spare I had. There was originally a television antenna in place.

    I hope you have a fantastic time with your jewel of a house!
