Wonderful household accessories from the Tudor through early Art Nouveau periods. The section on making electrified lighting is outstanding. Items shown look like expensive antiques. However, all are made from very cheap supplies and found objects. Easy instructions and lots of color photos. Complementary books from the same British publisher: 1) Making Victorian Dolls' House Furniture. 2) Making Dolls' House Furniture. 3) Dolls' House Bathrooms: Lots of Little Loos. All by Patricia King.
This is an excellent book and I have enjoyed it very much. It is easy to follow the instructions and there are many of them in this book. She does concentrate a lot on English miniatures, these are useful though. She gives many tips and instructions on how to use everyday items and turn them into beautiful miniatures with excellent step by step instructions. I was and still am very impressed by this book. I also paid more for mine since I purchased it in a retail store. Buy it Here! Believe me you are saving money! You won't be selling or giving this one away, but you will have it worn around the edges from using it so much. I know you will enjoy it as much as I have. I plan on using it for a long time there are still so many things to do and make. I have just scratched the surface. Although this is a 5 star book, I do not like to put that on anything, I like to see the authors continue to strive for better things. I do thank her for the wonderful work and the clear concise instructions and wonderful pictures in this book. As I said in the beginning, it is a keeper!
