The most famous and beautiful dolls' house in the world

Staff Rooms and Essentials

The Servant's Room ©

After World War One, the number of domestic staff declined in Britain as better employment could be found in offices or factories. Large households realised that they needed to accommodate remaining servants with good facilities, modern technology and decent living quarters. Queen Mary's Dolls' House has all of these things. The staff rooms on the lower and upper mezzanine floors can only be accessed by the back staircase or the service lift. These rooms give an insight into the authentic ordinary life of household staff that has otherwise been lost to time. Each bed has a chamber pot underneath and a wire sprung mattress. Odontase toothpaste, bottles of Eno's Fruit Salts and washstand sets are found on dressing tables.
