The Dancing Dolls

The Thai Classical Dance-Drama dolls are inspired by characters in a Khon (Masked Play) performance which is an episode in the Ramakien, based on the Ramayana of Valmiki. The chief characters are Rama, the hero; Sida, the heroine; Thosaganth, the demon king; and Hanuman, the white monkey general.

The Indonesian word ‘wayang’ is derived from a word meaning ‘shadow’ or ‘ghost’. These intricately cut and perforated shadow puppets are made from buffalo hide. Wayang Kulit shadow puppets are prevalent in Java and Bali, are without a doubt the best known of the Indonesian wayang.

The stories are usually drawn from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata or the Serat Menak. The island of Lombok has developed its own style of Serat Menak called Wayang Sasak.

My friend Cathy sent me the link to this magnificent Mahogany Dollhouse Cabinet which is on ebay right now!

It is a 1920’s flame-mahogany cabinet transformed into georgian-style dollhouse. There are three levels of fabulously decorated rooms with high-end furnishings, rugs, window treatments and accessories. The dollhouse is illuminated with the most ornate light fixtures!

The collection includes Bespaq furnishings, Warling Wicker, Barb Plevan plants, keshishian collection oriental rugs, lighting bug lights and sconces and other antique miniatures. The bidding starts at only $2,400 which is significantly lower than the combined price of the furnishings alone!

I bought these two kitchen sets for my new dollhouse, but I can’t choose one over the other. Both sets are so adorable! I think the mahogany and cream kitchen goes well with the rest of the furniture, but the light oak kitchen has a vintage look about it.

What do you think? Please help me decide!
