Starring movie role for Dolls House Emporium dolls' house!

7 November 2013

One of the Dolls House Emporium’s much-loved signature houses has become a movie star!

It features in a new film Austenland, based on a novel by Shannon Hane.
Montgomery Hall
According to the producers' website, Austenland is a romantic comedy about a thirtysomething New York singleton called Jane Hayes, who is a seemingly normal woman with one secret.
She has an obsession with all things Jane Austen.
Then, when she decides to spend her savings on a trip to an English resort catering for Austen-crazed women, her dreams of meeting the prefect regency-era gentleman suddenly become within her reach!
Of course, what caught our eye here at The Dolls House Emporium, and yours too, is the Montgomery Hall featured in our heroine’s bedroom.
You can see it right at the start of this movie trailer (below).
Pride of place – again – for DHE.


While at "Austenland", the leading lady is plagued with self-doubt about pretending to be a woman from the Jane Austen era. But of course, along the journey, she makes new friends and finds a new romantic interest.
It was Montgomery Hall which featured in the smash hit revival of legendary drama Upstairs Downstairs when it returned to the small screen.
Montgomery Hall had already featured in the Darwin children’s nursery in the film ‘Creation’ and as part of the Coutts & Co bank Christmas window display in the heart of London – and now has more credentials to add to its CV. One recent success was with Asprey’s jewellers, which used tiny furniture to display their finest gems.
Montgomery Hall boasts six large rooms and impressive hallways, and being the epitome of stately grandeur it stands proud as a home for a Lord and Lady - or can be transformed into a modern abode for the chicest of residents.
 No wonder Montgomery Hall is the stylists' favourite!

It has been featured in numerous window displays across London and been loaned-out for many editorial spreads including a centrefold with Peaches Geldof for Company magazine.
Around thirty 1:12 scale Dolls’ houses are available for hire from The Dolls House Emporium with designs including Mackintosh, Lutyens, Georgian, Victorian, 1930’s, Art Deco, contemporary, shops and children’s models.

Pride and Prejudice dolls celebrate the Jane Austen £10 note!

25 July 2013

We're celebrating the great news about Jane Austen being chosen as the face of the new £10 note by releasing our Pride and Prejudice collection dolls early!
Pride and Prejudice dolls celebrate the Jane Austen £10 note!
You can own the exquisite porcelain hand-crafted dolls, portraying Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy in their wedding day finery, from today.
The much-loved story of Pride and Prejudice follows Elizabeth as she deals with issues of manners, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the early 19th Century.

Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy’s costume features a handsome waistcoat under a fitted morning suit with a cravat and top hat. He features perfectly groomed sideburns! Elizabeth’s hair is curled and styled, and she wears an ivory wedding dress complete with over dress and veil. Underneath she’s wearing silky bloomers with lace detail. Delicate detailing is a feature of both dolls’ outfits.
The Pride and Prejudice author will be the next face of the note, replacing Charles Darwin, probably in 2017.


Can you spot the Dolls House Emporium miniatures?

5 July 2013

We were very pleased to see some of our miniatures used in a recent photoshoot by US reality TV personality Martyn Lawrence Bullard, as part of LA's 2013 Designer Dollhouse Showcase.

If you look carefully at the dolls house images online, you can see Dolls House Emporium items in the first two images.

In the first is our commemorative Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy silhouette pictures in their gold oval frames.

And in the second picture, our damask upholstered armchair from The Queen's Dolls' House Collection takes pride of place.
