In the beginning, dollhouses had just two functions: screen and pedagogy. They have been closely connected with prosperity and served as markers of social class and status. As Faith Eaton explains from The Ultimate Dolls House Book, the German word dockenhaus meant not dollhouse but “miniature house.” And a miniature house wasn’t a house to play. In Holland, those shows of riches were called “cabinet homes.” The front part of the house opens just like a china cabinet on hinges that can be closed and secured. Inside cupboard houses, individuals could both show off and conceal their ranges of expensive miniature objects.
