      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!

      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."
