Donna Lee Doll House Furniture

The Donna Lee line of furniture was produced during the 1940's and was less expensive than other brands that were popular during this time.  Woodburn Manufacturing of Chicago produced the 3/4" scale furniture.  The box sets that I have are pink and blue, which was produced in the late 1940's.   One of the things that I like best about this set is that "Donna Lee" was the name of Dave Rapaport's daughter, the president of the company.  The furniture is pretty primitive with not much detail.   

I was able to purchase three box sets in the boxes a while back.  The bathroom and the kitchen boxes and furniture are in excellent condition.  The living room box is in pretty shabby shape.
 The bathroom set includes a tub, a toilet, a sink, a scale, a mirrored medicine cabinet, and a dressing table with a bench.
The kitchen set includes an ironing board and an over-scale iron along with a sink, stove, refridgerator, table and chairs.
The dining room has a table, 4 chairs, a china cabinet and a buffet.  It may have been played with?  I like the whimsical legs on the chairs.
