⦿ the Oortman Dollhouse

 A  300+ yr old dollhouse.  I’m totally drooling over this incredible creation !

 Petronella Oortman  was a Dutch woman whose extraordinarily elaborate dollhouse
is displayed as part of the permanent collection of the Rijksmuseum 
in Amsterdam.
Built between 1686 and 1710, it features marble floors, porcelain 
dishes  and
specially commissioned artwork.

Her dollhouse was the inspiration for the 2014 novel The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton.
.
