The National Carillon, Canberra - in a matchbox
THE NATIONAL CARILLON, CANBERRA
A regular matchbox is given a makeover to become a cute tiny version of the great buildings of Canberra Australia. A keepsake you can fit in your hand. Photographs cover the box and plastic furniture decorates the inside.
Standing 50 metres tall, the National Carillon was a gift from the British government to commemorate the 50th year of Australia’s capital city, Canberra. It was designed by WA Architects Cameron Chisolm Nicol and built in 1970. It contains 55 bells and is situated on Aspen Island.
The Matchbox measures 5.4cm wide, 3.7cm tall and 1.7cm deep when closed.
The exact people and furniture may differ from pictured as each is individually hand-made. If you have something specific in mind for the people/furniture, please let us know when you order.
A lot of love has gone into the making of our dollhouses and each is a totally unique upcycled piece. They are significantly handmade and as such have their own personality and imperfections. Young people should be supervised and care should be taken when handling them.
