Open House Miniatures - dolls' house Christian Hacker Shop

This smart little shop was inspired by a Christian Hacker design of the late 1890s.

The decoration on this one is close to the original colour scheme, and it has been given a protective glaze that gives it a very slightly used feeling.

It is empty and ready to be filled with a selection of 144th scale goods.

My shops are entirely handmade and they all vary slightly.

This one is number 16 in an unlimited edition.

 

SIZE

Base – 1 and 6/16th of an inch wide by 7/8th of an inch deep – (3.5cm x 2.2cm)

Height – to top of front, is approximately 1 3/16th inches (3cm)

 

HISTORY

The company founded by Christian Hacker was an important German toy manufacturer at the end of the 19th, and the beginning of the 20th Centuries.

A shop similar to this one can be seen in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

 

PLEASE NOTE

This miniature shop is not a “toy” – it is a “collector’s item”
