I recently purchased a new parlor set, but this time I have room for it.  Not my usual cup of tea – this is a circa 1999 Rococo parlor set from China, but it’s resemblance to the furniture of the makers we often discuss compelled me to buy it.  Cheapest parlor set I will ever own, I’m sure.

    Lovely find. I was curious to know what wood type it is? Have you got a shot of the grain?

    John, my wife and I also recently purchased a piece of doll-house furniture. First time ever — really! It was a surprisingly faithful copy of a claw-foot tub with a stand-up shower enclosure on one end. It was taken right out of Mott’s 1880s catalogue. I wouldn’t normally proffer such personal information, but your public admission has engendered my confession. I guess I better re-read your “Manly Man’s Guide to Buying Victorian Antiques.”

    Haha, I also have that parlor set. I bought it years and years ago in Brimfield of all places. funny that they still make it with the same fabric even!
