"This particular set of ritual miniaturized dollhouse-like chairs comes from Eastern Europe, so it’s not just that these things made their way from the old world to the new, but they also speak to the imagination, and I could conjure up a scene in which children are playing with these, moving the chairs…a game." Jenna Weissman Joselit, historian of daily life.
