At the Show - Exhibits

This week's exhibit is Cynthia Howe's quarter-scale Bliss Street displayed at the 2011 Good Sam Show. It consists of a row of six Bliss houses complete with landscaping and accessories. Each house is an exact replica of an authentic Bliss dollhouse produced in the early 1900s by Bliss Mfg. Co., Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The company pioneered in the development of lithographed paper on wooden dollhouses and toys. Cynthia is currently offering four 144th scale "Little Bit o'Bliss" dollhouse kits on her website. cynthiahoweminiatures.com  All photos are courtesy of Connie Sauve.
