Wickham Place is the London home of Lord and Lady Southgate, their children and staff. Located in fashionable Belgravia it is a fine Georgian terrace house. Today we are in the day nursery. It must be a fine day outside as the nursery is empty: the children's precious toys deserted. Nanny must have taken the children, Piers and Sarah, out to play in the square onto which Wickham Place faces, to give them all some fresh air. What a wonderful surprise awaits Nanny, Piers and Sarah when they return, for in their absence Cook has set out a splendid afternoon tea for them! This year the FFF+ Group have decided to have a monthly challenge called "Freestyle On The Fifth". A different theme chosen by a member of the group each month, and the image is to be posted on the 5th of the month. This month the theme, "Childhood" was chosen by me. What better way to celebrate the golden age of childhood than with a nursery scene. However this nursery scene is different, for it is made up entirely of 1:12 size dollhouse miniatures, some of which come from my own childhood. Fun things to look for in this tableaux include: - A nursery tea of jelly, cake, milk from a calico print jug and a tin of Schoof's Biscuits manufactured in Bourges, France. - A wooden rocking horse and two wooden rabbits, all of which were former Christmas decorations from my childhood Christmas Tree. - An Indian ivory elephant on the top of the bookshelf, which was a gift to me from my Great Grandmother. - A pair of little girl bookends on the top of the bookshelf, made of lead and hand painted by me. - A miniature Delft ewer set from a trip to Holland. - Three pictures of Pierre-Joseph Redouté roses and two of little girls in frames made from buttons, hung on ribbons, made by me when I was eight or nine years old. - Shells on the mantle piece and bookshelf from my recent FFF+ visit to Geelong. - Children's books which are artisan 1:12 versions of "Hansel and Gretel" illustrated by Kay Nielsen 1923, "Beauty and the Beast" (reprint) illustrated by Walter Crane 1910, "Jack and the Beanstalk" illustrated by Flora White circa 1920s, "Abroad" illustrated by Thomas Crane 1843, "5 Little Pigs" and the "ABC Book" illustrated by W.W. Denslow 1903 and the Frog Prince illustrated by Arthur Rackham 1905. Each book reproduces not only the covers, but illustrated pages inside! - Children's games on the floor and shelf which are artisan 1:12 replicas of "Plays in Fairyland" produced by Raphael Tuck and illustrated by Ellen Jessie Andrews 1900, the "Teddy Bear Game" circa 1910s, a "Circus Pictures" jigsaw puzzle circa 1890s, "Blow Football" circa 1900s and "Electric Game Electro Tutor" created by Jouets Citroen between 1930 and 1932. - A 1:12 artisan painting of Brockhampton in Worcestershire, hand painted on porcelain. - A pair of wooden miniature Georgian gambling dice (inherited from my Grandmother, passed down through the generations). - Two bowls and one bottle that are actually 1930s glass bugle beads. - A sterling silver rickshaw that was keepsake of my Great Grandfather from a business trip to Shanghai in the 1920s. - Artisan 1:12 replicas of Sunlight Soap, and glass bottles of Lemon Bath Salts and cotton wool manufactured by Charles Charnley Chemists England. - A hand woven miniature Persian carpet and William Morris "Willow Bough" wallpaper.
