George & Freda Dorrell organised a Doll's House Exhibition in Haddenham village hall on Saturday 23rd November, and the event attracted many local visitors and aficionados from a wide area.
Exhibits on display were as fascinating as they were varied, ranging from character dolls, miniature furniture, lighting and accessories in 1/12th, 1/24th and 1/48th scales right up to complete antique and vintage doll's houses.
Many items were finely hand-crafted with great skill in traditional hardwoods, tapestry, crochet work and lace — each offering opportunities for doll's house hobbyists to create unique and delicate homes on a lilliputian scale.
Adding rich variety to the more traditional exhibits were miniature Japanese gardens, 'month-of-the-year' display scenes, and a tiny cut-away lighthouse. There was even a model railway built entirely from Lego.
One of the highlights of the show was a large doll's house on offer as the main raffle prize. This delightful piece had been kindly donated by Judith Halls.
