Late Victorian/Edwardian Dollhouse found on AnniesMinis

Late Victorian Furniture

A revolution was about to take place. Artists and designers revolted against the machine age that replaced an individual’s talent. In furniture, the Arts/Aesthetics and Arts & Crafts movements would round out the Victorian era. And a book would be the focal point.

The Tasha Tudor Dollhouse study, found on “Mrs. Rabe’s trip to Williamsburg”

Tasha Tudor’s Dollhouse
