NOTES: The dolls' house was conceived both as a gift from the British nation to Queen Mary and as an historical record of the ideal early 20th century English house. Princess Marie Louise commissioned Lutyens to design the house and together with the involvement of Sir Henry Morgan and a huge range of well-known manufacturers, it became a showcase for 1920s British craftsmanship and design. The house first went on display at the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924.
