Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween all! To celebrate, here are some spooky treats from the collection of artist Kerry Alexander ...


Antique Maternity Room


Made in Germany ca. 1690-1720. This maternity room was probably a gift for a new mother. The detailed bead-work sets this one apart from similar room-boxes of its time.

The doll's faces are wax. Their dress, beds and the curtains are silk. The walls are also lined in fabric. Size: 43cm x 30cm x 25cm. The collector paid £4,400 for this room-box.

1:144 Scale Fairy Cottage by Pat Carlson


It is a great pleasure to share with you the 144th scale fairy dollhouses of Pat Carlson. Ever since I was introduced to her mini books and puppet theaters in 2006, I have been a fan of her exquisite craftsmanship and intricately detailed miniatures.
