The Blackett baby house. Front view of closed house. This large doll's house named after the family for which it was made, is a typical example of the quality of 18th century doll's houses, built more as a miniature for adult pleasure than as a child's plaything. Each room provides a detailed illustration of the organisation and decor of a whealthy household of the time, sometimes giving evidence on furnishings and domestic equipment known otherwise only from descriptions of the literature of the day.
