This exquisite doll house, belonging to a star of the silent film era, now resides in a museum in Chicago. This book gives details of how the house was imagined and chronicles some of the many workers and companies who supplied their talents in order to make those flights of fancy into a reality. The descriptions of the tiny furniture, décor, and garden are fascinating, especially for the fact as to how many items in the house actually are working replicas of the objects they represent, from chandeliers that light up, faucets that can be turned on to allow a thin stream of water to fill a bathtub, to a minute working razor, just to name a few.

It is a marvel to behold. The doll house was a work of love for all who contributed and at one time was taken around to many major cities to garner money for charities.
