A Fabulous Rare Antique 19th Century Folk Art Wishbone Dolls House Chair.
The Victorians were recycling and reusing a century before the country had heard of Earth Day! Everyday objects like wishbones, spools and nut shells were all given a new life as fanciful, yet functional art objects. All the rage in the 19th century, this crafty trend of turning trash into tiny treasures resulted in Victorian fancies.
Wishbones were one popular way for those who couldn’t afford luxuries to make playthings. The bones would be kept to one side after a meaty meal and these would be turned into dolls and furniture. Fabulous!
Condition is good, commensurate with age and use.
