favorite this post Antique 1920s folk art homemade bungalow house model - $160 (Ottawa) hide this posting unhide

I’ve had this on display many years—time to thin the herd.

Really unusual, fantastic folk art house model. Roof does not readily come off so I do not think it was a doll house. Maybe a bird house, but doubtful given materials used. Siding is a great dark green wood, several windows with glass—2 glasses are missing but 1 is inside on the base. Porch is great, has a paperboard floor. Rest is wood. Singles are a paperboard—note the wear/damage to some shingles. General wear throughout. Super folky and a conversation piece.

Good size — 22” long at longest side x 20” wide by 16.5” to top of roof line (chimney taller). Must look in person to truly appreciate.
