Hearthsong Halfpenny Dollhouse
I purchased this house on eBay a few years ago. The label says "Hearthsong Halfpenny Dollhouse" and It has been sitting in my hobby room in its original bag. I was impressed with the artwork on it.
It is a folding house and is made from "book board" and the hinges or seams are made from fabric tape. The package is dated 1998 and the house folds flat.
The original artwork appears to be a combination of water color and colored pencil and it has been printed on the dollhouse.
Each room is very detailed. Everything from the floors,to baseboards, to the wallpapers and crown moldings and even the ceilings are well thought out.
I do not know anything about the house or what type of furniture or dolls it went with ( any help would be appreciated )
I like the circle side window and the playful wallpaper.
I like this wallpaper, with the flowers "falling" from above and the two types of wood to make the herringbone pattern on the floor.
Here is a detail of the round window on the exterior. Note the bird nest in the tree.
