The Queen's Dolls' House


The Queen’s Dolls’ House is the most exquisite replica of an aristocratic Edwardian residence, created for Queen Mary in the early 1920s by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. In this book, Lucinda Lambton guides the reader through this magical miniature house, with its garden designed by the foremost gardener of the day, Gertrude Jeykll, and its fleet of luxurious Daimler and Rolls-Royce motor cars. The author takes us on an exploration of life below stairs, from the cellar, with its tiny bottles of vintage wines, to the kitchens, realistically equipped with running water, electricity and functioning lifts. Above stairs, we visit the high-society setting of the saloon, dining hall and library. The latter room contains specially commissioned and handwritten works by such authors as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Thomas Hardy as well as remarkable miniature works of art by some of the best-known artists of Queen Mary’s era.

Published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House
