Product description


The secret to a realistic and authentic looking period dolls' house is in the fixtures and fittings - these are both the basics and the finishing touches. Each chapter of this book deals with a different fixture or fitting, discussing how it featured in the period home, illustrated with a beautiful fully dressed miniature room set. The chapter then goes on to feature a captioned, photographic gallery of ideas, shown in chronological order, from Tudor and Georgian through to Victorian and even Art Deco. This will assist the model maker both in selecting a model suitable for a particular dolls' house, and in styling it. A myriad of accessories to dress each feature is also illustrated in full colour. Finally, each chapter has a selection of step-by-step projects that show how to make or adapt some of the fixtures and fittings featured, including tips on achieving decorative finishes and effects.
