Doll’s house kitchen with 45 miniatures, anonymous, c. 1845

wood (plant material), h 41.8cm × w 47.8cm × d 24.6cm. More details

In the mid-19th century a collector of miniature silver had this wooden doll’s house kitchen made to provide a natural setting for his collection of 18th-century miniature domestic silver. That the miniatures were not made for this cabinet is clear from their scale: the brushes, for example, are much bigger than the linen press, whereas in real life they would have been considerably smaller.
