Various objects in this dolls’ house are marked with the year 1676, which was probably when it was largely completed. It was made for Petronella Dunois (1650–1695), a wealthy orphan who lived with her sister in Amsterdam. The dolls’ house contains a peat loft, a linen room, a nursery, a lying-in room, a reception room, a cellar, a kitchen and a dining room.
