- About Trigger Pond Cottages
As with all Trigger Pond Cottages, Goose Cottage is an original design inspired by the craftsmanship of centuries ago. The bones of each cottage are made from premium Birch plywood while the decorative carvings come from finely grained soft wood that accurately represents 1:24 scale. Once completed, all of the floors and exposed woodwork are treated with high-quality beeswax to preserve the natural features of the wood. Most models come with three electrical circuits that provide hidden lighting, giving each room its overall glow as well as flickering wall candles and burning fires. And each building comes complete with intricately detailed, leaded light-effect windows, wooden doors with ironwork hinges and doorknobs and an individually tiled red roof typical of the period.
Trigger Pond cottages, pubs and inns are to be admired as much as they are fully functioning dollhouses. A 1:24 scale, half-timbered English Cottage sitting on a coffee table or displayed on a corner bureau with its lights twinkling in a darkened sitting room is captivating, and evocative of years past.
