    Tate Baby House, England, ca.1760. Little is known about the lady who last owned this house, Mrs Walter Tate. It was made in Dorset and is said to have been modelled on an 18th century Dorset house. It is a complex structure which comes apart in several sections so that the owner, usually a lady, could take it on her travels.

      The Tate Baby House c. 1760, was made in Dorset and is said to be modelled on an 18th century Dorset house, owned and well looked after by a lady. Children would have only been able to play with the house occasionally under strict supervision. What a sumptuous interior!

      Antique Dolls House The Tate Baby House dating from 1760 was owned by five or six generations, passed down from mother to eldest daughter. It includes original wallpapers and painted paneling in the style of Robert Adam and a lying-in room for a pregnant doll. The story of this house centers on the rising status of three generations of Georgian women.

      1760 British Baby House at the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, London. While children may have been allowed to play with this house under adult supervision, its original owner was actually a grown-up woman. In the 18th century, well-off women would also have doll houses (sometimes called baby houses), and collecting the various miniature furniture and accessory pieces to furnish it was a popular hobby.
