Lot of over 60 vintage Tuck's post cards and five sets of eight postcards each featuring items in the Queen's Dolls' House. Queen Mary's Dolls' House was a dollhouse built in the early 1920s for Queen Mary, the wife of King George V. It was designed by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, with contributions from many notable artists and craftsmen of the period, including a library of miniature books containing original stories written by authors including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and A. A. Milne. The prestigious contract to produce official postcards for the Queen Mary's Dolls' House was won by Tuck's Post Cards (Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd.) The total number of cards produced by Tuck was 48 (or 49!), in six sets of eight. Consecutive sets of eight were sold in in printed brown paper packs.
