Dolls' houses have a long history, stretching from ancient Egypt to sixteenth-century Bavaria to modern global mass-production. Today, fine collections of houses exist, for example across Britain and America, and of course are still to be found in many homes, both as toys for children and as works of art, to which many hours are devoted. In this book, Moi Ali sketches the fascinating history of the dolls' house, and describes how to begin your own collection. From scale to style to type of house, and from where to buy to budget and key manufacturers to look for as you start collecting, Moi provides a detailed guide that will be an invaluable aid to the new collector and an interesting read for the more experienced. Restoration and display of the houses are also covered, to help bring your collection to life.
