Queen Mary verses the Royal Wedding
Want a noble site of yesterday? Picture Lady Mary's Dollshouse. This is a special miniature that was built somewhere between 1920 and 1924 in 1:12 scale. And no once again it was not intended for a child.
Want a noble site of today? Of course picture the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. What a grand picture any royal wedding is. This event took place on April 29, 2011.
Both of these events bring up pictures of grandeur online. And both, were and are, history in the making in their specific time frames.
One is set in the 1900s and the other is set in our now generation of 2011.
In Mary's era of the 1920s you can be assured that most doll houses were owned and admired by many adults. So it is no surprise that this dollshouse was owned by Queen Mary while she was the wife of King George.
Not only was it a gift to this esteemed lady from the people of this day but it also indicates how life must have been for her in this period of time. Seeing as the fixtures and fittings are lifelike, working, and replicas of items actually found in Windsor Castle in the 1920s.
Every era we encounter for dollhouses has one very great characteristic. They have all been built by people who lived in the time. So naturally they put things they were use to having in these homes.
That fact is interesting is it not? I think so too.
Artisans from all over were gathered up to work and display their specialties for this dollshouse. As a result most of the items contained in this structure actually work.
