Hope Villa

This mid-19th century dollhouse is one of the finest in the Mary Merritt Doll Museum's collection. It is currently part of the Noel Barrett Vintage Toys auction. The exterior fa├žade is rich in architectural details with outstanding hand-carved and hand-painted columns, balustrades and quoins painted in a faux-marble effect.



The scale of the house is almost 2" to the foot, with the ground floor rooms measuring 17" tall. The majority of furnishings came with the house when Mary Merritt purchased it in England after the initial opening of the museum.
