We Found These Charming Tudor Style Dollhouse Photos with an Estate

Miniature recently found these charming photos of a Tudor style dolls house with items we have been liquidating from the estate of miniaturist Anna Hewitt. They were unlabeled and undated, but we think they were probably taken sometime in the early to mid-1980s. We don't know who designed or built this lovely piece, or what has happened to it since these photos were taken. We thought we'd share them with our blog readers for design inspiration!
