This new souvenir guide explores the exquisite miniature delights of Queen Mary's Dolls' House, the largest and most extraordinary dolls' house in the world. Built by the famous architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in the early 1920s and housed ever since at Windsor Castle, this astonishing creation is a perfect replica of an aristocratic Edwardian residence.
The contents of the Dolls' House exemplify the very best of English arts, crafts and manufacturing. Its art collection was created by the leading painters of the day, while the remarkable Library houses miniature volumes by authors including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and Thomas Hardy. No detail was overlooked, from running water, electric lights and working lifts, to limousines, vintage wines and a garden by Gertrude Jekyll. Every feature is illustrated here in charming detail.
