Dolls House Evolution

Originally dolls houses were known as baby houses. They took form usually from a card board box or on a shelf in a home. This was to allow dolls furniture and dolls to be displayed. 

Traditionally the houses facades were painted in plain colours This was to hide any architectural or domestic design.

Architectural details were added in the later half of the 18th century. They were usually modeled on famous houses such as Norwich, Nostell Priory, UpPark House and even Strangers Hall.

These then resembling the dolls houses we see today.
