So this afternoon after work I asked her and a friend to come along to tea.
so the table was set.
and Brigitte came for tea and once again the tea set was a good size for these slightly bigger dolls.
Her friend was Valentina , an Italian Waldorf girl. Who enjoyed having a chance to practice her English .
They had a nice cake ready to slice .
Having been born in Germany and traveled from Switzerland Brigitte was more than happy to help Valentina with her English.
I was lucky enough to pick up this and an armchair, photo to follow on one ebay search and then another two of these chairs.
For your information the size of the chair is as follows, legs from floor to seat 6 inches, from seat to top of back rail 6 inches depth of seat from front to back rails is 5 inches and it's also five inches across, hope that's helpful for anyone on the look out for suitable sized chairs.
The fourth chair I have is this one which has arms and is slightly narrow in the seat , still measures 5 inches across but only just under 4 between the side arm rails.The back is also slightly higher at 6 1 /2 inches between seat and top . A great well made chair but a little more rustic , I've never seen another one like it.
The beautifully embroidered tablecloth is in fact a vintage tray cloth again found on ebay for a fair price.
I just love finding things, hopefully at a reasonable or bargain price , that turns out to be exactly the right size or near as dammit!
As self-proclaimed morning and arvo tea time experts, we give you a mark of A+ for a tea time well-done! The furniture is so lovely and perfect for the dolls. My boys are each a different size so finding properly scaled furniture for all is very difficult. Congratulations on your lucky finds. Keep hunting!ReplyDelete
Why thank you kindly sir :) I love looking for furniture to suit all the dolls and would love to have more but it's where to keep it all! :)Delete
Beautiful chairs, I love them. I would love to get some but honestly, with all the stuff I bring back and forth to the coast, I would need an articulated lorry to carry it all....actually there's an idea!!ReplyDelete
The girls look the perfect size for the tea set too.
Sharon, you'll just have to get two of everything, to save all that carrying back and forth ! Lol and what a good excuse!xxDelete
Many thanks indeed Denise for answering my question about the teaset with the Course dolls with such super photos.ReplyDelete
IMO the Course/studio dolls are the most perfect together.
You are welcome. Since I one have one course doll now and do not have a studio,i'll never know. :)Delete
I think the tea set works with both Sasha sizes - it's perfect with the course dolls, and it's only slightly oversized with the serie dolls, but they are meant to be children, so that's okay too in my opinion.ReplyDelete
I love the china, such a good match with the table cloth, and your chairs were a great find!
Thanks, I think so too! I was very lucky to find those chairs when I did. :)Delete
*yummy scrummy* cake with the cup of tea too. And I don't see this tea set as over sized for any of the dolls. To me it is the perfect size.ReplyDelete
As are the chairs. I have a few of the ones without arms myself and all have a slightly different pattern on the back!
I agree tea set is great size, wish I could have found them a proper tea ! but maybe another time :)Delete
They are great chairs as you know and well worth getting hold of if you can :)
