This miniature house was designed, decorated, and furnished by Faith Bradford (1880-1970). It is five stories tall with 23 rooms and is built on a scale of one inch to one foot. Containing over 1,354 small-scale components, Bradford's miniature masterpiece is comprised of furnishings, fixtures, and other household items that she either purchased or received as gifts during her life between 1887 and 1970.
The house contains furniture, linens, toys and other household items. Calling this small house home are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Doll, their 10 children, two visiting grandparents, five servants and 20 pets.
Faith Bradford in 1951 donated the Dolls' House collection to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington for an exhibit in the National Museum of American History. At this time it is still displayed and still attracts a crowd of viewers, young and old.
