Jessie M.King Dolls House.....

I was at the Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery, in Glasgow yesterday enjoying paintings by the wonderful Glasgow Boys. However for me the gallery with the 'Glasgow Girls' work - Jessie M.King and Francis & Margaret MacDonald - was pure joy! Their ethereal and fairy-like water-colours, gessoed panels, embroidery, ceramics are so inspiring - these girls could do it all.
Jessie designed a dollshouse in 1913 to be included in an exhibition in Paris at the Musee Galleria, where various designers were allocated space to create their own vision of a child's world (circa 1913). This is that I wish it had gone into production or that there were plans?
