Schneegas Bedroom Set

I came across this antique Schneegas  bedroom set on ebay the other day.



Schneegas was a German company that produced fine wood dollhouse furniture around the turn of the century.


The detail in each piece is really quite extraordinary, it's as if each piece is a work of art.  The lining of the box suggested period wallpaper and the paper doily suggests lace.


I was particularly attracted to the Art Nouveau style of the carvings at the top of the wardrobe, the marble topped dresser and the door of the nightstand.


I love the asymmetrical design of the desk


The text on the box suggests is was intended for the French market. 
I believe it translates to bedroom for my doll




Even the box was finely detailed.  I was a little saddened to think that these pieces never got the chance to find their place in a dollhouse or room box, but I was fascinated to see how the product was marketed in it's original box nearly 100 years ago.
