Mystery dolls’ house goes on sale

March 12th, 2012

You might know Lacock as an unspoilt Wiltshire village which is mostly owned by the National Trust …

But it is also the inspiration for a mystery dolls’ house which is currently up for auction.

The large Victorian dolls’ house is believed to be modelled on one of Lacock’s buildings but its history is something of a mystery, according to an article in the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald.

Describing the house, auctioneer Gordon Brockman, expressed the view that it is “… an incredible build and wonderfully decorated.”

He goes on to say, “Some of the furniture is expected to do well on its own as there are well-made miniature models of a tin bath, snooker table, piano and fireplaces as well as many more.

“I am sure it will do well and we have put an estimate on it of £300 to £500.”

Real houses may be struggling to hold their price in these difficult economic times but dolls’ houses, it seems, are continuing to beat the recession.
