An "Oilette" postcard of "The Dining Room", The Queen's Dolls' House (later to be known as Queen Mary's Dolls' House), produced by Raphael Tuck and Sons ("Tuck's Postcards") catalogue number 4500-4. These postcards started to be produced in 1924, when the dollhouse first went on public display.




A stately and fascinating room for a banquet is the Dining Room of the Queen's Dolls' House. It is 42 inches long, 20 inches wide, 15 inches high, the scale being 1 inch to the foot. It has a painted ceiling; Royal portraits and pictures in miniature by eminent artists adorn the walls. The table, 2½ inches high, is set for a dinner party with snowy damask tablecloth and is fully equipped—flowers and fruit, china, cutlery, silver candelabra – all complete to the smallest detail.
