Dolls' Houses
Past & Present

A website and ezine about dolls' houses: antique, vintage and modern.
Plus furniture and accessories.

Welcome to Dolls’ Houses Past & Present!

Dolls’ Houses Past & Present is a knowledgeable and friendly site for all lovers of dolls’ houses, their associated miniatures, and dolls’ house dolls, whether old, new or somewhere in between!

Please make yourself comfortable and sample what we have to offer. Much of the site, including our online magazine, is open access and may be viewed by guests, but only members can post in the Forums, upload photos, or list/buy items for sale.

There is much more information about the site, and its history, in the other parts of the About section at the top of the page. Answers to various specific queries about what the site does (and doesn't!) offer, may be found in the FAQs

If you love dolls’ houses as much as we do, please come and join us! This is a non-profit-making website and there is no charge to become a member.


This version of the Dolls' Houses Past & Present website went live on October 14th, 2019.  If you were a member of Dolls' Houses Past & Present before that date, you will have registered on the original site. Unfortunately, there was no mechanism by which we could transfer membership details here from that site: your log-in information, including your password, for the original site will not allow you access to the members-only areas of this one. All members registered on the former site who would like to be active here have to re-register. You can do that here.

Whilst membership is free, there are regular costs incurred in running the site. The site is not a commercial venture, neither does it carry advertising, so generates no income. We rely on donations from members and site users to help cover the costs. If you would like to contribute towards these you can do so here:

Want to help?

We're always looking for articles, features and photographs for the magazine. This is an opportunity for you to share information and photos of your dolls' houses and/or items from your collection. Your knowledge could inspire newcomers to the hobby.

Also, if you encounter any dead links or typos we'd love to know.
