Handpainted Goddesses Decorate Wall Panels of Doll Greatroom, with greek classic architectural style doorways with columns defining wall spaces, crown moldings, triglyph, etc. friezes.

approx 2 3/4 inches high, each goddess. Room is 18 inches long, 12 inches wide. Walls 9 5/8 inches tall.

Goddess ID's solicited, i guess.

The architectural elements are formed of plaster and applied. Doorway trim in wood, as are all black woodwork elements. Door embellishments are also formed in plaster and applied. all hand painted.

    These are lovely, here are my guesses:

    1st image = Diana, goddess of the hunt
    3rd = Demeter, goddess of the harvest

    Will you post photos of the entire dollhouse? would love to see it.

    The entire dollhouse no longer exists. this room was the only complete room that survived. I will post images of the room itself.

    ah, interesting. That would be great!

    Some of them are pretty much representative of the seasons of fall and spring, one could be the muse of music, the first Diana.

    yes I was thinking muses too, absolutely.

    Could be Roman based too! The look is very reminiscent of Pompeian wall decoration:

    But then they refer to the Us Senate too!
    "The photo shown above is of the Senate Appropriations Room and designed by Constantino Brumidi who was hired to create murals for the U.S. Capitol in 1855. The murals are based on Brumidi's study of Pompeian wall decoration."
