A Dolls' House from
Hamley's Toy Store in England
This early dolls' house has the emblem found on the top of the house that says "Hamley's".
This shop was made possible by a man named William Hamley in 1760 in High
Holborn, England. He called his shop "Noah's Ark". As it became so popular with
adults and children from all over the world, he moved his shop to a building
that had 5 floors to display his toys at 188-196 Regent Street in London. It was
the finest toy shop in the world.
To date my dolls' house that I recently purchased, it has the High Holborn insignia on the house. So we know it was sold there so it has to be before 1881. My feeling is the house dates somewhere around 1840. I will continue to study and research this information.

Circa: Early -1840

The Glass House
As a recent buyer of this house, I'm not familiar with its history or its actual age. The last time I saw this house, it was displayed at Lucy's Dolls' House Shop in Camden, Maine, when I visited a number of years ago. Each time I approach this house in my living room to get a better view, I discover additional openings or details I hadn't noticed before. All of the ornamentation is carved wood, painted gold. The carving work is so amazing I have photographed each of these fine pieces that you see painted gold. Incidentally, since the back of the house is made exactly like the front façade of the house, one enters through the front door (first floor) or you'd enter through the same door in the back. The side panels of windows pull out to enter the second floor on both the right side and left side.
Beveled glass windows are found throughout the house. There are long narrow ones, some have wooden frames over the windows that look like they are paneled. There are even some square windows!
The roof is framed in dark wood that matches the rest of the house. Glass slanted panels are set in –one long one in the front and back. The sides have smaller panels of slanted glass. The very top of the house has a flat board to support the grand statue of a woman holding a pelican! The last photo shows her foot resting on a ball. The carving is just the finest carving I have ever seen with the detail of her hair and facial features!
Please feel free to contact me for any other questions about this outstanding house. firstname.lastname@example.org
Measurements: 27- ½"h.; add 10" for the carved lady on top of the roof x 33" width x 17" depth.
