Hersbyholm Estate 1925, Stockholm

We were recently on holiday in Stockholm and visited the Nordiska Museet with its interesting collection of Swedish dolls' houses. The houses are displayed behind glass and in such a way that it is extremely difficult to photograph most of them. The only way to cut out the terrible glare from at least one and sometimes two layers of glass was to use my phone directly on the glass. Unfortunately my phone camera is nowhere near as good as Zoe's. So don't expect the quality of her Titania's Palace album! The only half-decent pictures are the ones I took of the Hersbyholm Estate dolls' house, made in 1925 by the estate carpenter for Catharina and Anne-Sophie von Heidenstam. Their mother donated the house to the museum in 1939 (I wonder did the girls have any say in this?). The museum gives disappointingly little information about the houses and their contents, and there is no publication about them either that I know of...
