An "Oilette" postcard of "The Entrance Hall", 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 4500-2. These postcards started to be produced in 1924, when the dollhouse first went on public display.




A stately entrance to a superb Mansion. Here in the great Entrance Hall of the Queen's Dolls' House we see a beautifully curved sweep of white marble stairs with wrought metal balustrade. The floor is of Lapis Lazuli and white marble and there are suits of armour, a statue of Venus, hall-table with visitors' book and diminutive pen and inkstand. The beautifully decorated walls and ceiling, representing the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden,are the admirable work of William Nicholson.
