Six Decades of Collecting Mansions, Cottages, Shops, Stables, Theaters, Churches--Even a Zoo!

Flora Gill Jacobs is an internationally known authority whose passion for antique dolls' houses, their furnishings, and other miniature collectibles is now legendary.

For over six decades, she has acquired, researched, and lovingly restored her vast collection, paying close attention to period design and decoration. Indeed, Ms. Jacobs regards her collection as historic preservation in miniature. Though her museum, The Washington Dolls' House & Toy Museum, closed in 2004, Ms. Jacobs continues to work on her similarly comprehensive collection at home.

In this long-awaited volume, Ms. Jacobs showcases her entire collection of American, English, and European "mansions,"villas, and cottages, while relating wonderful stories of their provenance and acquisition. Illustrated with over 1,200 color photographs, the book offers readers the opportunity to peruse rare furnishings, shops, theatres, kitchens, zoos, and other related toys not often seen, even in museums. A preface by the late Faith Eaton, author and renowned collector, is included.

Throughout the book, the author's sprightly prose captures the joys of discovery, and allows readers to share an exciting miniature journey that has lasted a lifetime. A very young admirer recently paid Ms. Jacobs the highest compliment when she whispered to her, "you are a good finder."A good finder indeed.
