An "Oilette" postcard of "The Wine Cellar", 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 4500-8. These postcards started to be produced in 1924, when the dollhouse first went on public display.




The Wine Cellar of the Queen's Dolls' House is worthy of Royalty. Few cellars can have finer wines, real wines of the best brands, though in Lilliputian bottles, Champagne with the most famous labels, Ports and Burgundies, Sherries and Liqueurs to satisfy the taste, if not the thirst, of the most exacting connoisseur. 43 varieties, all with their proper bottles, labels and corks, complete and realistic down to the tiny cobwebs, not forgetting the Cellar Book, where everything is duly entered.
