Great news if you’re a fan of the exclusive Queen’s Dolls’ House Collection
: (5955) The Queen’s Fireplace
is back, built to a new specification and available to buy.
It forms part of the first collection of miniature masterpieces from The Queen’s Dolls’ House which is on display at Windsor Castle.
These hand-made masterpieces from The Queen’s Bedroom lend themselves to being displayed on their own, in groups or in the bedroom diorama setting.
The original fireplace and mantelpiece itself was Lutyens-designed.
The lines and features of the fireplace echo some of the grand classical features of the exterior of the dolls’ house in Windsor Castle and key features on the original mantel are picked out in Jade stone.
In fact, the grandeur of the bedroom is epitomised in this floor-to-ceiling fireplace and mantelpiece. Probably the most formidable piece in room, it never becomes the centre of attention. Originally made from marble, its stark white finish was softened by the delicate colours of the inset jade.
Our recreation, hand-built in wood, is brought to you by permission of Her Majesty The Queen, under licence from The Royal Collection.
to enjoy the whole collection – and the story behind it – online, and whether you simply wish to own a piece of British royal heritage, or acquire an exquisite addition to an existing dolls’ house collection, this is a unique opportunity to purchase a beautifully-detailed miniature of the highest quality.

From a dolls' house library to a bookshelf near you
21 August 2012
One of the most delightful features of the famous Queen Mary’s dolls’ house at Windsor Castle is the miniature library complete with a collection of tiny books by the likes of Thomas Hardy and Rudyard Kipling.
Now one of the books in the library’s collection has been published in a full scale version to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
No bigger than a postage stamp in its original incarnation, ‘J. Smith’ is a fairy story by Fougasse, one of the foremost cartoonists of the day back in 1922 and incidentally the creator of the famous World War II poster, Careless Talk Costs Lives. His real name was Cyril Kenneth Bird and what he created was a witty tale told in verse and accompanied by his own illustrations.
This book is also available as an introductory gift when you sign up to The Dolls House Emporium's Queen's Dolls' House Collectors' Club
You can read more about the book on the BBC news website
and you can also track it down at your favourite bookseller.
