Mr Newton, a lawyer, was a keen amateur carpenter and it was he who designed and made most of the furniture and the house itself. Mrs Newton meanwhile made all the furnishings and bedclothes. The dolls, china, utensils and some of the more elaborate furniture were 'mass' produced in Switzerland and Germany and were added to the dolls' house during family holidays abroad. Everything is to scale. The dolls' house moved to Asham Richard in Yorkshire when Emma Newton married the Revd. Usher Miles and was played with by their five daughters. On the death of her husband in 1912, Mrs Miles moved to Cheltenham, taking the dolls' house with her. After her death in 1931, it remained in her family by descent until it passed to the current owner in 1972. see illustration
