This idea has been made real
Laurence and Angela are well-known for their witty, beautifully crafted miniature automata, which continue to not only delight dolls-house enthusiasts but also have a large following in their own right, most automata are available as framed versions to put on your wall. They also craft perfect miniature replicas of Victorian and Edwardian household ephemera, from the very high-end Gent's shaving stand for use by the Lord of the manor, to brushes, kitchen implements and needles threaded with cotton.
