Queen Mary s Dolls House

Queen Mary s Dolls  House

It is that story, with the remarkable photographic record of the house and its contents which accompanies it, which this book tells.

Author: Mary Stewart-Wilson

Publisher: Vintage

ISBN: 0091820197

Category: Dollhouses

Page: 191

View: 110

When a dolls house has been designed by the most famous architect of his time, filled with specially commissioned objects of the very best contemporary domestic, industrial and artistic design, and presented to a queen for her personal pleasure, then surely a detailed study of it is justified. It is that story, with the remarkable photographic record of the house and its contents which accompanies it, which this book tells. The house was presented to Queen Mary in 1924 as a gesture of goodwill from the artists, craftsmen and authors most prominent at the time. It is not only a royal treasure; it shows in miniature a detailed picture of a domestic interior, and of an established way of life, in the period after World War I - and of course, unlike virtually every full-sized example of the kind, it remains entirely unmodernised. The craftsmanship visible in the contents of the forty rooms and vestibules is unparalleled, and it is presented here in David Cripps's photographs to capture an English period scene of incomparable charm.

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. In the central character of Nora, Ibsen epitomized the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Nora's ultimate rejection of a smothering marriage and life in 'a doll's house' shocked theatergoers of the late 1800s and opened new horizons for playwrights and their audiences.
