Item Description

Volume 1 of Liza's lavishly illustrated history of Baby & Dolls’ Houses
and the makers of their furnishings

This book provides a vibrant and revealing insight into the world of antique dolls’ houses. A passion for antique dolls’ houses, 18th and 19th century interiors and wallpapers, architecture and social history has been the inspiration for the writing of this book. Liza Antrim is one of the leading experts in her field. Trained as a picture restorer, she has brought her skills to bear on dolls’ houses which have suffered from generations of play and ‘improvements’. The result is a record of authentic period interiors that are hardly ever seen in the full scale world, a fascinating window into the past. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book reveals previously unseen houses, many with original contents and decorations. Original and important research into several newly discovered English makers and toymen makes this an indispensable work of reference.
 
Purchase & other details for Family Dolls' Houses of the 18th & 19th Centuries can be found at www.ciderhousebooks.com.

A German edition of this book is available from Swantje-Koehler-Verlag (info@swantje-koehler-verlag.de).

Volume 2, Liza's second book (Family Dolls' Houses of the 18th & 19th Centuries - see above for details), is now also available and is a worthy companion to Volume 1.
