Furniture making in America in the 19th century ranged from the small shop, like that of Duncan Phyfe in downtown New York at the turn of the century, to the huge factories of Grand Rapids and Buffalo at the turn of the next century. Phyfe was one of the rare early century cabinetmakers who actually used paper labels and tags to identify some of his work. In fact, some items can be dated by the address on the label, since his shops constantly expanded and the streets were renamed. This numbered label from the Mahogany Association was the assurance that all exposed wood was genuine mahogany. Photo courtesy Fred Taylor.

This period is so diverse that only selected companies -- manufacturers and wholesalers -- will be illustrated and some general observations made. Improved transportation, distribution and ever increasing consumerism allowed this expansion with certain goods sold as American but in reality made in foreign countries such as China. One of the major changes in dollhouses since when this history began was the rapid growth in popularity of collecting miniatures by adults from the s to the present. They create miniatures, acquire new factory and artisan crafted miniatures and accumulate vintage and antique miniatures for display as furnishings or to furnish dollhouses. Now this trend is reinforced by growth of emails and websites allowing widely dispersed collectors to communicate and gain knowledge.
