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.

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.

Pride and Prejudice Elizabeth Bennet dollPride and Prejudice Mr Darcy doll

Why not start planning your room display now, around some of the novel’s best-known lines: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife” or “A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment”, perhaps!

The first item in the wedding gift collection is the pretty heart cushion, complete with lace edging and ‘E&F’ embroidery-design transfer.

Spend over £40 on furniture and accessories this month to secure yours, absolutely FREE.

Exquisite high-spec literary collection from The Dolls House Emporium

30 January 2013

To mark the 200th year in print of Jane Austen’s romantic novel, Pride and Prejudice, The Dolls House Emporium is introducing a pair of exquisite porcelain hand-crafted dolls, portraying Elizabeth and Darcy in their wedding day finery.

The much-loved story follows Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the early 19th Century.

Both of the new dolls are hand-crafted in finest porcelain and dressed in full regency attire.

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.

Pride and Prejudice

The Dolls House Emporium has also created a beautiful collection of gifts to adorn their marital home, at Darcy’s ‘Pemberley’ estate.

Along with the new dolls they provide inspiration for an imaginative room display: one option might be to re-dress a dolls’ house for the wedding breakfast – after first spending a little time re-reading Pride and Prejudice to decide on a scene that best suits your skills.

Pride and Prejudice free gift collection

The supporting gifts in the exclusive limited edition collection have been made available FREE to collect with a minimum spend until May. They include a pretty heart cushion, complete with lace edging and ‘E and F’ embroidery-design transfer, a ‘watercolour painting’ of their marital home, Darcy’s Pemberley estate, a pair of pretty Coat Hangers with E and F Initials, a pair of silhouette portraits and a beautiful floral wedding garland.

The time is right to start planning a brand new room display around some of the novel’s best-known lines: "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife" or “A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment”, perhaps!
