The Servants Hall and Pantry
This is the servants hall and pantry of my dolls house, adjacent to the kitchen. The servants would eat in the servants hall, and I have set it up to be a supplementary kitchen too. You might just be able to see the early style range in the fireplace, which I purchased at Michal Morse's shop in Northleach, Gloucestershire, the chair in front of the fire is also from her shop. The other furniture is either from McQueenie Miniatures or I have made myself. I'm still working on the pantry, trying to fill it at least! I need to hang the game and cured meat that are currently just laying down. Much of the food comes from Mouse House Miniatures, who exhibit at most of the big UK shows. I love the detail of the work. The wooden storage jars are by Sandy Eismont.
Michal Morse's shop is called The Dolls House. it is based in Northleach in the Cotswolds (GL54 3EJ) she used to run the shop in Covent Garden in London until she retired. The shop is quite small, but packed with goodies, and if you're able to get there, it's worth popping in, might be an idea to call first as she has limited opening times. mostly Saturdays.
