Quarter Scale or 1:48 doll houses are gaining popularity particularly in the United States and UK. Kate has managed to combine a poseable body (just as in the larger scale dolls) into 1:48 scale 1/4 inch = 1 foot. The dolls retain all the charm of the 'hand made' with the fun of adopting any pose.

You will find the witches pictured right in our 'Dolls for Sale' Tudor section priced at $25 each or if buying more than one $20 each.

The 1:48 scale Edwardian bathers are priced in the same way as the witches. The Tudor workers in the bewhouse are priced at £25 each

The job of the Scullery Maid as described in 'The complete servant' Samuel and Sarah Adams. 1826:

It is the business of this servant to light the fires in the kitchen range, and under the copper or boilers, and stew-holes-to wash up all the plates and dishes-scour and clean all the sauce-pans, stew-pans, kettles, pots, and all other kitchen utensils; and to take care that all the latter are always kept clean, dry, and fit for use.

She is to assist the kitchen-maid in picking, trimming, washing and boiling the vegetables, cleaning the kitchen and offices, the servants'-hall, housekeeper's room, and steward's room; and to clean the steps of the front door and the area. She makes the beds for the stable men and generally fetches, carries, and clears away for the cook and kitchenmaid, and otherwise assists in all the laborious parts of the kitchen business. Wages range from 8 to 12 guineas a year.
