Wardrobe - Blue Bedroom, Dolls' House, 'Pendle Hall', 1940s Object Reg. No: HT 26964

Summary:
Wardrobe from Room 18 - Blue Bedroom, Main Building Section, Pendle Hall. From back right corner.

It was created by Felicity Clemons as part of a 40 project to create a grand fully-furnished Georgian style country dolls' house. The project began in the 1940's when Felicity's daughter, Antonia, was given a three-room dolls' house by her grandmother. Mrs Clemons was not happy with its scale or authenticity and so began a rebuilding project which resulted in a four storey grand house, now known as Pendle Hall. Although some items were purchased during shopping trips to Melbourne, the majority of furnishings were constructed by Felicity's own hands, using numerous reference books and magazines.
Description:
Wardrobe with a blue background and gold asian scenery on sides, inside and outside of the doors and on the drawers. Wardrobe has four doors and five drawers. Three wooden pegs inside left hand door. Two shelves in centre doors. Three long drawers and two smaller drawers
