My sister and I had the chance to actually view the house at Windsor Castle (she will be kind enough to give us the year). It was a last minute thing and I am so glad to have had the opportunity to have seen the house. The link above takes you to an interactive tour of the house.
An excerpt taken from the site :
"Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House is the largest, most beautiful, and most famous dolls’ house in the world. Built for Queen Mary, consort of King George V, by the leading British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens between 1921 and 1924, it includes contributions from over 1,500 of the finest artists, craftsmen and manufacturers of the early 20th century. From life below stairs to the high-society setting of the saloon and dining room, a library bursting with original works by the top literary names of the day, a fully stocked wine cellar and a garden created by Gertrude Jekyll, no detail was forgotten – the Queen’s Dolls’ House even includes electricity, running hot and cold water and working lifts. Each room, is fully furnished in every way, and waiting to be explored."
|This is the entrance foyer. The paintings are actually made by the artists.|
|The library. Each book is readable and in most cases actually penned by the true author.|
If you should ever get the opportunity to visit the UK, a stop to see the house is a must!
