9780751301120: The Ultimate Dolls' House Book

This book traces the history of doll's houses, looking at the furniture behind the facades of 35 grand mansions, elegant townhouses, and humble homes with pictures that lead readers from room to room, revealing exquisitely crafted interiors and their intricate furnishings: tapestry rugs, solid silver services, and hand-painted porcelain. Most houses are inhabited by a doll family, and sometimes their staff, all dressed in contemporary costume, to complete this study of domestic life over the last 350 years.

From Booklist:

Even for those readers with grown children or those without offspring, Eaton's latest contribution to the literature documenting dolls' houses is a joy--and an education--to peruse. Though the text and color photographs are squeezed to conserve space on the page, this exploration into both the contents and fa{‡}cades of more than 35 miniature homes yields an appreciation of the crafts involved--e.g., woodwork, furniture making, needlework, stonework, ceramics, and, in general, all the arts incorporated into real-life dwellings. Eaton uses more illustrations than words; for each of the houses featured she includes provenance (when known), brief descriptions of exterior and interiors, and individual photographs of furniture, dolls, and decorative accessories. These miniatures prove that there is indeed great beauty in all things small. Barbara Jacobs
