Devonshire Villas dolls’ house. Made in 1900, it is a replica of a real house that stood in Kilburn, North London. It was a present from Samuel Loebl, who lived in the house at the time, as a present for his daughter, Cecy. Both his daughter and his grand-daughter played with the house. It is decorated and furnished in the very latest style for the time and many of the features, such as the fitted bathroom and the double sink in the kitchen, were very modern. The bathroom walls have “sanitary” wallpaper, specially coated to be washable and still a very new idea at the time. Cecy made the carpets, lampshades and upholstery in the bedroom and drawing room. The house was exhibited at a Toy Fair in Frankfurt in 1925.

I filled it with vintage things I’ve collected, put in wallpaper and a carpet and made the bedding and the tiny bear.

Dolls’ house known as ‘Mrs. Bryant’s Pleasure’, 1860-1865. It was made for a lady called Mrs Bryant, who lived in a house in Surbiton called Oakenshaw. She wanted a miniature record of the interior of her home and commissioned a professional cabinet-maker to make the furniture, which was made with skill and accuracy. The rooms are furnished in exactly the same way as a middle-class home of the time would have been. The wallpaper is the same as Mrs Bryant would have had on her walls at home.


The Queen’s Dolls House (later known as Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House), is an extravagant 1:12-scale dollhouse. It was designed by the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and was built from 1920 to 1924, as a gift to Queen Mary from the people in thanks for her work during the First World War. The house is full of miniatures that actually work, such as lifts, hot and cold water, and a garage with cars that have working engines.

This Dollhouse Costs $8.5 Million

This extravagant home has a weaponry room, a dovecote, a wizard’s tower, and an appraised value of more than $2,000 per square inch—all good hints that it’s not a traditional abode but a 9-foot-tall miniature called the Astolat Dollhouse Castle. Built by the artist Elaine Diehl around 1980 and decorated with 10,000 teeny-tiny items, the $8.5 million dollhouse is the world’s most expensive  dollhouse. (Source)
