Can a dollhouse be a real masterpiece? Of course, it can. Especially if it was made by an exceptional master carpenter, who took care of much woodwork after his retirement.
Wood and Marbles
The Sahlberg is a captivating masterpiece of execution, a dollhouse with nine rooms. Jimmy Landers built it from hardwood. Inside there is a two-storey library, an impressive staircase, a living room, two bedrooms and a dining room. The floors are made of mahogany wood and marble (the one located at the entrance consists of over 2000 tiles).
Living Room With Red Wallpaper and a Mirror in a Golden Frame
Decorative Fireplace in the Master Bedroom
There are 22 individual lamps instaled in the whole house. What is interesting, they have traditional light bulbs and light all the rooms without difficulty (the building has its own electrical installation). However, a large-sized brass chandelier is the first to be seen.
Books All The Way up to The Ceiling
The most impressive is the panelled library. It is equipped with bookcases, a fireplace and animal antlers. Volumes located high under the ceiling can be accessed by means of a ladder. Jimmy Landers constructed the floor from more than 3,000 cherry tree planks.
