News Of A Fantastic Dolls House Exhibition Coming Soon In Bath - UK!

Liza Antrim, author of the fabulous 'Family Dolls' Houses Of The 18th & 19th Centuries', has sent me information of the forthcoming 'Small Worlds' exhibition that is opening shortly. 

Liza will be exhibiting a number of historic c1700s - c1800s dolls’ houses and miniature furniture from her own private collection, at the wonderful No. 1 Royal Crescent in Bath (UK). The exhibition begins on the 9th May and ends on 8th November 2015.

The oldest dolls’ house in the exhibition is called  “Bellamy’s House”  which was made in c1762.  Amongst the other houses on display will be a dolls’ house made in Bristol for the children of local chocolate maker Francis Fry in c1840 (“The Fry House”)....this all sounds utterly fascinating!!

For antique and vintage dolls house fans, this is an exhibition not to be missed and I for one am planning on visiting if I can during the summer.  

More information, including times of opening and admission fees can be found on the following link:

Wow, that would be a wonderful exhibition to see - a bit far for me to travel from New Zealand unfortunately. I have Liza's wonderful book but it would be lovely to see the houses for real.

It certainly promises to be an amazing exhibition, 12Create.But although you live so far away, at least you have Liza's gorgeous book with all those wonderful pictures of her collection. Celia
