Provenance: the house was the idea of Marion Springs (wife of the author Howard Spring, his best known work Fame is the Spur) she decided to make a dolls house and with the help of the handyman a scale model was constructed. She was keen for the interior to also be a replica of the cottage and so with the help of a cabinet maker, friends who were silversmiths and herself the contents of the house were created.
