The Doll Bed Like a Cupboard

Posted on

Hand-carved doll bed by Brittany.

In the part of France called Brittany, beds are like wardrobes. Even doll beds are like that. They are beautifully sculpted and very comfortable once one gets used to them.

Long and low cedar chests are often placed in front of the beds. Duvets, pillows and extra feather beds are stored in these. If there was a child in the family, his carved cradle was placed on top of the chest at night so that he was close to his mother. Since there was no child in this Breton doll family, the large brass candlestick was placed on top of the chest instead of the cradle.
