My childhood dollhouse furniture, now 56 years old, was used by me and my two siblings. I have to say we did a good job taking care of it. The beautiful cabinet still has glass in it and the finish is still intact. However, the chairs had no legs and I have only the base of the lamp...in pieces. So I did some "basteln", German for crafting, whittled legs, stained them and glued them into place. Not the best job ever, but serviceable.
