Old Canberra House, ANU, Canberra - in a matchbox
OLD CANBERRA HOUSE
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 miniature people decorates the inside.
Old Canberra House was designed by John Smith Murdoch and built in 1913. This landmark double story building was originally known as The Residency. Constructed as a home for the Administrator of Canberra Colonel David Miller, the building has also served as a diplomatic residence in the 1930s and later as Canberra’s Commonwealth Club.
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.
