The most famous and beautiful dolls' house in the world

Cellar, Kitchen and Pantry

Queen Mary's Dolls' House Cellar

The Cellar ©

Every domestic need is catered for in the dolls' house. There is a fully stocked cellar and pantry as well as a kitchen equipped to prepare a banquet. The act of choosing which brands to include was carefully considered. Agnes Jekyll (1861–1937), the sister of Gertrude (who designed the garden of the dolls' house) was in charge of the Kitchen stores. She wrote to Princess Marie Louise that it was best to involve only firms who already supplied the Royal Household to avoid upsetting manufacturers with shows of favouritism.

The Wine Cellar is well stocked. Over twelve hundred bottles of the finest champagnes, wines and spirits and beers were donated. They were chosen by Francis Berry, the senior partner of Berry Bros of St James's Street in London, today Britain's oldest wine and spirits merchant.
