New Upstairs Downstairs series features Dolls House Emporium favourite

February 20th, 2012

The smash hit revival of legendary drama Upstairs Downstairs has a new star of the screen for its second series this springtime – a Montgomery Hall from The Dolls House Emporium.

The production office for the show called prior to their autumn filming looking for a grand dolls’ house for 165 Eaton Place, where all the action takes place.

The Dolls House Emporium at Ripley regularly loans houses and miniature accessories to production companies who need something a little different for their advert, film or music video.

Of course, we were happy to loan a Montgomery Hall and its basement, which together stand almost 4ft tall – and fit in beautifully with the ambience of Eaton Place.

The show itself follows the fortunes of a diplomat’s family and their servants in the grand London townhouse. The new series will “begin” in 1938 and span the months leading up to the outbreak of World War II.

Our first view of Montgomery Hall last night!

The six new 60-minute episodes began filming in October and started broadcasting on BBC1 this month.

Montgomery Hall is already featured in the Darwin children’s nursery in the film ‘Creation’ and as part of the Coutts & Co bank Christmas window display in the heart of London – and now has more credentials to add to its CV. One recent success was with Asprey’s jewellers, which used tiny furniture to display their finest gems.

Around thirty 1:12 scale Dolls’ houses are available for hire from The Dolls House Emporium with designs including Mackintosh, Lutyens, Georgian, Victorian, 1930’s, Art Deco, contemporary, shops and children’s models.

We have recently fulfilled requests from
