Dressing Table - Blue Bedroom, Dolls' House, 'Pendle Hall', 1940s Reg. No: HT 26967
- Dressing table from Room 18 - Blue Bedroom, Main Building Section, Pendle Hall. From left wall under window.
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.
- Rectangular dressing table painted blue with gold painted asian detail. One long drawer across front and three smaller drawers down each side. Four drawers recessed into centre of table.
