The first is on a skirted round table in front of the window. It shows two literary dolls, Alice on the left and Heidi on the right. Both are 11" tall made by Effanbee from their series of storybook dolls. They are seated in front of a stack of books that serves as a tea table surface.
A porcelain doll stands between them:
The top layer is a book-shaped box and under it are the books, Heidi by Johanna Spyri, and Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
On a nearby bookcase a couple other tea vignettes are displayed.
The top shelf holds a lovely porcelain doll in wicker chair with her teacup on a wicker table with a crocheted topper. The teacup is porcelain by Crown Staffordshire, made in England.
This miniature teacup is one of my very favorites:
The matching teapot rests on the very top of the bookcase, since it did not fit on the wicker table.
A blue and white dolls’ tea set rests on top of books on the second shelf.
On the shelf a wooden bench with a woven seat holds a tiny doll who sits with two dog pals.
Her tea setting rests on the shelf below:
These vignettes all reflect great buys. The round table, tablecover, crocheted doilies and the doll tea sets are from local gift of thrift shops. The tiny doll cost 50 cents while the one above her cost $8.99 in a gift shop. The Heidi and Alice books were found for about ten cents each at a thrift store. The larger doll chairs and the green ceramic pine cone came from Marshalls and Michaels. The bookcase is a thrifty consignment shop find.
