bliss dollhouses

“Bliss Manufacturing Co was located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  They made many products in their 100 year history, but they are best known for their wooden toys and dollhouses covered with lithographed paper.

The Bliss company began as a producer of wooden screws and clamps for piano and cabinet makers.  While the exact date that they began manufacture of toys is not known, the earliest know advertisement for Bliss toys appeared in 1871.  The majority of the dollhouses were made around the turn of the century.

The interiors were sometimes decorated with lithographed wallpaper, floor coverings, windows, doors, etc.”
