The Bosdyk doll’s house is a unique example of the art of the miniature. It competes with the very best in the tradition of Dutch dolls’ houses, renowned in the seventeenth century for their style and extraordinary attention to detail. That this should have been made in Australia is unusual, and the Bosdyks’ eight years’ dedication to the project is an extraordinary achievement. The story is one of Dutch migrants bringing the very best of their traditional culture and skills to Australia.
