100 years ago, we were delighted to be asked to make several miniature jars of Tiptree jam for Queen Mary’s Dolls House.

Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House was built between 1921 and 1924 as a gift from the nation to Queen Mary following the First World War. It is a perfect 1:12 scale replica of an aristocratic Edwardian residence, complete with electricity, working lifts and running water.

Throughout 2024, The Royal Collection Trust is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House at Windsor Castle, the largest and most famous dolls’ house in the world.

The scale replica of an Edwardian residence was built for King George V's consort as a gift from the nation after World War One, and we were lucky enough to be included.

We created and sent miniature jam jars for the kitchen of the doll’s house, there was jam inside these little jars!

Here is a photo of one of the miniature jars (which is on display in our small museum of jam making at Tiptree) alongside a regular jar so that you can see the scale.

The doll’s house is on permanent display at Windsor Castle, you can find out more here https://www.rct.uk/event/100-years-of-queen-marys-dolls-house-01-2024#/
