Doll's Wicker Parlor Suite

parlor suite

In a girl’s imagination, doll accessories, furniture, and carriages become the props of fantasy play. Doll furniture, such as parlor sets, dining tables, beds, and nightstands suggest the familiar domestic routines that girls narrate as they play with their dolls. Doll carriages, cradles, cars, and campers also furnish the details of pretend play. Strong’s collections of doll accessories, furnishings, and vehicles date from the late 19th century to the present day, and they reflect the fashions and styles of several generations of American play.
