On vacation in Amsterdam I discovered that the Rijksmuseum has dollhouses!! A whole room full of them. It’s in the 1600s-1700s galleries, which I think are on the second floor. These are to scale (looks like about 1.5″ to the foot), made by cabinetmakers. Apparently, collecting for dollhouses was a hobby in the 17th century. These ladies would feel right at home with our dollhouse groups now I think.
