A House Fit for a queen

Queen Mary's Doll House is probably the best show of the beauty, detail and creativity of all dollhouse in history. King George V of the United Kingdom presented the home of the Queen Mary in 1924 as a gift from the people of England to reveal to future generations how the royalty lived during the early twentieth century.

Princess Marie-Louise was the first to approach the idea to create such a masterpiece of Sir Edwin Lutyens, one of the best architects of England at the time. Taken by the concept, immediately Lutyens set about designing a house that would be worthy of a queen, no costs spared. He wanted to create a fully furnished house miniature that was accurate to items found in Windsor Castle, down to the smallest detail.

Built at 1:12 scale and standing nearly three and a half feet tall, the doll house room forty begun to take shape. Lutyens artists and craftsmen at work inside. To give an idea of ​​the detail and care given to these chambers, they built a hall with a swirling staircase on the second floor, a library with walnut library, a staff pantry equipped with all modern conveniences of the day, and the chamber of the queen a canopy bed, the night sky painted on the ceiling.

These little touches him alone would make the Queen Mary's Doll House one of the miniatures the most impressive ever. Sir Lutyens had more ambitious plans.

He insisted that it is necessary that everything in the house is fully functional. He hired electricians to do all the work light and luster, plumbers for all toilets and faucets open, and artisans to have two elevators stopping at each floor. He even went so far as to make a gramophone twelfth scale designed to function as normal when it is played.

Sir Lutyens had talented furniture makers of the day making small replicas of the furniture found in Windsor Castle. He had all the cupboards full of canned goods which bore the logos of famous brands in the real Queen's kitchen. He linens, curtains, clothes, nursery toys, rugs and created to scale. The cellar contained miniature bottles of wine with labels Real filled a thimble of wine real value advertised. The sink even had its own roll of toilet paper.

Over a hundred seventy writers, Poet Laureate Robert Bridges to Rudyard Kipling, were commissioned to write miniature books for the Library. Artists provided known watercolors and art for the Queen Mary's Doll House.

As the project inflated, Sir Lutyens chaired a Dolls' House charged supervising all these artists, writers, and companies willing to lend there services to its vision.

No detail has been overlooked. There were Royal Doulton and Wedgewood China, a Singer sewing machine in the linen, utensils, ornaments, napkins, stamp albums, and a small snail crawling on a leaf in the garden.
By the end of the project, almost fifteen hundred people participated in the creation of the dollhouse. Queen Mary has been a great joy when she saw her gift, and ruled the house shared with everyone, so people can see and appreciate the ingenuity of the English people.

He made his first appearance in 1924 in the British Empire Exhibition, attracting two million visitors before it was transferred to Windsor Castle. It remains today the doll house for anyone to see and appreciate.
