Antique dollhouse collection in the National Museum of Denmark

Last summer I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Copenhagen. One of the highlights of my visit was touring the National Museum of Denmark. Not only did they have a very interesting special exhibit about the Vikings, but they also have an excellent antique dollhouse collection.

I have posted some of my pictures of the collection below. The dollhouse room was quite dark and the houses were behind glass, so I apologize for the quality of the photos. I think you will enjoy them despite the bad photography.

I have this little chef in my own collection.

It was fun to see furniture that I have in my collection in the exhibit. I have the clock, buffet and chairs.

This lovely large China doll relaxing on a child sized settee was part of an 19th century drawing room exhibit

I fell in love with this corner cabinet dollhouse. 

I would love to try to make a reproduction of it. It is so charming with built-in shelves and fireplaces.
