Additional Information:

  • Historical Context: This figurine set represents a woman in the mid-19th century, hanging a quilt while her playful dog distracts her. Laundry during this period was a day-long burden, involving soaking, scrubbing, boiling, and rinsing clothes by hand. The caustic homemade soaps often left women's hands sore and red, making washday one of the most dreaded household chores. Despite the hard work, many families, even low-income ones, hired laundresses to help with the laundry.
  • Collector's Appeal: Ideal for history enthusiasts and collectors of everyday life miniatures, this piece offers a realistic portrayal of domestic life in the 19th century. The playful dog adds a touch of humor and relatability to the scene, making it a delightful addition to any collection.

Add this exquisitely crafted "You Are Really Not Helping!" set to your collection to appreciate the daily life and challenges faced by women in the 19th century.
