Editors Message

Welcome to our first issue of the Dolls Houses Past and Present online magazine for over a year! I apologise for the long delay in publishing this issue, due to problems with the website. Anyone who followed the instructions in the last issue for dressing a doll, and was waiting for the instructions on wigging it, will have had a very long wait, I’m sorry!

This issue covers a range of time (nearly 200 years, from the Killer Cabinet to contemporary creations) and several countries (including the UK, Germany, the USA and Mexico). Topics include individual dolls houses and dolls house manufacturers, commercially made and artisan made dolls house furniture as well as home made furnishings, and many dolls, some made by an artisan, some made at home, some commercially made and dressed or customised at home. 

I hope you will all find something to enjoy, inspire and engage you. I am happy to receive suggestions and contributions for the next issue at any time. 

Warm regards,

Rebecca smiley
