A History Of Dolls' Houses By Flora Gill Jacobs
Published in 1965 it measures 8" x 10" with 342 pages. The dust jacket is torn but the book is in good condition.
This fascinating account of dolls' houses and miniature furnishings covers four centuries in time and many countries. Included are chapters on Dutch, German, French, English and American houses, with additional information on Scandinavian, Italian, Swiss and Japanese examples. Since dolls' houses of the past reflect in great detail the architectural furnishings and customs of many countries and eras, this a book not only for the collector but for non-collectors interested in social history as well..
World-famous dolls' houses described at length include Queen Mary's Dolls' House, complete in every detail down to miniature bottles of real champagne in the wine cellar; Colleen Moore's spectacular Castle with it's diamond chandelier and gold forks and knives, Titania's Palace which has been called "A Museum-in-Little of Italian Art"; the Stettheimer Doll House with it's unique art gallery of miniature originals by famous modern artists.
