Exhibition celebrates the craft of dolls’ houses

May 14th, 2012

An exhibition being staged at Burnham Museum aims to celebrate the craft of dolls’ houses with over 100 items on display.

Speaking to the Maldon and Burnham Standard, a spokesperson for the museum said, “… we have a wonderful selection of dolls’ houses in all different styles and appearances.

There are superb examples of furniture and decoration for the houses, many items which have been lovingly made by highly skilled local enthusiasts.”

The exhibits on display date from the mid 19th century through to the modern day.

There is one doll which is dressed as a Girl Guide from 1912 when the movement was started by Lady Baden-Powell and another shows an early attempt by the American market to copy British dolls.

If you are interested in visiting the exhibition, it runs until June 10.
