This harder-to-find 2-Story Colonial style doll house with a covered front porch was produced by Marx in the 1950s and came with traditional style 1/2 plastic furniture. This doll house is quite large, with dimensions approximately 32" long x 16" tall x 16 wide base/platform, and includes 6 rooms with a carport.There are two bedrooms and a laundry room, but no nursery in this model. The exterior design simulates red brick and light green wood shake siding, with a tan color simulated shingle roof. Extra features include an opening plastic front door, 4 plastic windows that slide open and shut, and a plastic bay window. In this model, the chimney is plastic with really nice detail in the simulated brick. Check out the carport and plastic simulated wrought iron front railings. It's furnished with a combination of traditional style 1/2 scale furniture in both hard and soft plastic Marx furniture with a few other vintage furniture pieces, then complimented with an assortment of vintage and new accessories / trinkets. The gray kitchen furniture is unique, and not easily found, and check out the pink washer/dryer combo and other utility room pieces.
We decorated the second bedroom as a den/rumpus room, with a piano, ping-pong table, blue boomerang couch, and clasic console television / record player. The 7 piece dark brown dining room set is very nice Marx hard plastic. The new powder blue 1958 model Chevy Impala convertible has opening doors, hood and trunk, along with rubber whitewall tires. The doll house and furniture are in gently used condition, with some signs of play and aging. The overall finish of the doll house is shinny, with a few tiny dings/dents, no rust, and most if not all metal tabs in place.
The interior hinge for the front door is missing, as are 2 of the plastic front posts missing. The right end front post is missing it's footing and top plate, but stays in place. All-in-all, this is a very nice, clean and sturdy doll house.
