Doll House Furniture

When you're buying Victorian furniture, look for items that are scaled appropriately. The most commonly-used scale for dollhouses is the 1/12 scale. For example, if an actual Victorian-style chair is 3.5 feet high, its miniature should be 3.5 inches high.

You might also find other scales such as the 1/2" scale (where 1 foot is equal to 1/2"), 1/4" (where 1 foot is equal to 1/4") and 3/4" (where 1 foot is equal to 3/4"). There are also furniture produced using 1/144" (where 1 foot is equal to 1/12"). This is the smallest scale used by most doll house furniture makers. Dollhouse Furniture
