Help us bring the Nostell dolls' house back to life
Commissioned by the Winn family around 1735, the Nostell dolls' house is an intricately-crafted historic house in miniature. It is arguably the best example of its kind – and at over 260 years old it’s in vital need of conservation.
- It was commissioned around 1735 for Susannah Shaw, wife of the 4th baronet
- It is the only one of its kind still in the house it was made for
- It will cost over £100,000 to restore it and bring it centre stage
