About the Book
Several companies made lithographed dollhouses at the beginning of the twentieth century, but none was more charming or prolific than the R. Bliss Manufacturing Company of Pawtucket, Rhode Island. This book is a comprehensive guide to the dollhouses, furniture, and toy buildings made by Bliss over more than three decades. It includes dollhouses made by other companies which are often misidentified as Bliss. Examples are documented by advertisements and catalogs from the period. With over 350 large color photographs, it is possible for the first time to fully appreciate and identify the artistry of Bliss.
