_________CHARMING WORLD OF DOLLS' HOUSES_________


zabawa domkiem dla lalek La Belle Époque – “The Beautiful Era” brings to mind a joyful, favorable time in life; time that we so frequently and particularly warmly recall...a carefree period, filled with charming innocence and beautiful dreams of childhood.

And at heart many of us wish they could always remain the child they once were, that they could return to their La Belle Époque, that...

THE TIME STOOD STILL

Dolls' houses undoubtedly possess this charming energy. Their magical power instantly transposes us back to a wonderful, carefree time of childhood.

Almost anyone who has ever seen miniature replicas – full of artistry and craftsmanship, built with an extraordinary precision – has been in awe. Nobody passes by them unaffected – dolls' houses fascinate random passersby, children, connoisseurs and collectors alike.

The phenomenon of dolls' houses lies in their universal nature – they can become a dream toy, a fascinating hobby, or an extraordinary document of a given time; thus turning into a valuable collectors' item, a historical treasure or, passed from generation to generation, a precious family legacy.

The making of dolls' houses has a rich worldwide tradition, which unfortunately hasn't yet been adopted in Poland. This is why I would like to instill in you my enthusiasm for the miniature art, awaken in you the passion for creating and collecting dolls' houses, and bring about the renaissance of this type of art – its La Belle Époque.


Dom dla lalek Petronelli de la Court

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY...


The history of dolls’ houses brings us back to the middle of the 16th century, when Duke of Bavaria - Albert V ordered for his daughter one of the first dolls’ houses. It would be a misunderstanding to call this present a “child’s toy” – it rather resembled a precious cabinet displaying meticulously crafted miniatures. This house was unfortunately burned in a fire in 1674.

Dolls’ houses gained popularity in the 17th and 18th century in Germany where there were used as educational toys. On the other hand, elaborated cabinet houses, whose miniature interiors were a reflection of the houses of the era, were built in Holland and England.
domek dla lalek z Meksyku Queen Victoria was a dedicated fan of dolls’ houses. A famous “Victorian cabinet house”, containing a miniature stylish world was constructed during her reign, around 1860.

The fashion for dolls’ houses quickly gained popularity in North America, where the first miniature replicas were created in the late 18th century.

kuchnia norymberska z XVIII w Besides dolls’ houses, “room boxes” have been very popular. These are miniature rooms with three walls, a floor and stylish furnishings. Famous Nuremberg kitchens from the mid-17th century, French saloons, or German shops are among the most splendid examples of room boxes.

In Italy, the tone was good to have thumbnails on religious themes, so children were playing in the "vestry", "church" or "monastery".

In the 1920's, Queen Mary’s Dolls' House was crafted, the most spectacular dolls’ house ever made; which to this day is a pride of the Windsor Castle. The exterior is a lifelike copy of the 18th century palace, while the interior portrays the Queen’s residence during her era. The magnificent structure is outfitted with lifts, running hot water; one will even find there cars used by the royal family at that time, miniature porcelain sets and bottles filled with real wine!
Domek dla lalek amerykańskiej firmy BLISS The mass production of dolls’ houses began in the 19th century, made possible by the progress in color lithography. The majority of dolls’ houses at the time were made from paper, cardboard or wood with facades painted, imitating brick or stone. “Toy dolls’ houses” have been produced since the 1950's. These were smaller than their predecessors and made from plastic, in addition to other traditional materials. They were primarily manufactured in Germany, England and the Unites States.

Although the plastics market is dominated by commercial contemporary dolls houses, it is still a favorite material used for their construction was left painted wood.
Domek dla lalek angielskiej firmy TRIANG z 1930 Over the centuries the scale in which dolls’ houses are built has been standardized. Impressive constructions like Petronelli de la Court from the second half of the 17th century (185 cm high and 207 cm wide), would no longer be built. Also valid in Germany and the Netherlands, scale 1:10, "went out of fashion now."

Today, dolls houses are built in scale 1:12, widely adopted by designers and collectors of miniatures. Sometimes you can also find doll houses created in 1:24 scale, 1:16, 1:6 (size "for the Barbie"), but they belong to the houses of minorities. In Scandinavia, from the 50's popular scale is 1:18 scale (Lundby's cottages).

Families who deeply value tradition, often are in possession of an antique dolls’ house, that has been passed down from generation to generation, thus becoming part of the family’s legacy.

Miniature replicas have a power like the written word, because they capture the style and fashion of the era in which they were created.

Perhaps you too will begin such a tradition in your family...?
