£12.95

The Queen's Dolls' House is the largest, most beautiful and most famous dolls' house in the world. Created for Queen Mary in the early 1920s by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, it is a perfect replica of an aristocratic Edwardian residence, complete in every way - from the wine cellar, with its store of tiny bottles, each containing a thimbleful of vintage wine, to the library, with its exquisite volumes of original works by authors such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Thomas Hardy and Edith Wharton. In this book, Lucinda Lambton, the well-known broadcaster and architectural historian, guides the reader on an imaginative tour of this most magical of residences, from life below stairs to the high-society setting of saloon and dining room, from the children's toys in the nursery to the miniature accoutrements of dressing-table and bathroom. Her narrative is complemented by documents from the Royal Archives including previously unpublished letters between Queen Mary and Lutyens and the many contributing artists and manufacturers. 132 pages and over 220 colour illustrations.
