A Brief History
In Tudor times, the majority of people had very little money, however, the noblemen and women of the time were excessively wealthy and did not need to work a day in their life to enjoy a life of luxury. Half of the population during this time could barely afford food and clothing for themselves and their families. Many people worked 6 days a week and got little pay for their work, resorting to many sleeping on bare earth floors on a make-shift mattresses stuffed with straw.
In 1550, things slowly started to change, a law was passed which stated that workhouses should be built in every parish in the country. Most people who were employed in the workhouses were not paid but were instead given meals and a bed for their work. The conditions within these workhouses were often pretty dire, with the workers often only being separate areas within the home - usually in the basement. In larger cities, house workers were not allowed in certain “wealthier” parts of the city. If they were seen there, it would be assumed that they were breaking the law.
Types of Trigger Pond Dolls Houses
The homes of the wealthy in Tudor times were often grand affairs, with bed chambers, grand halls and dining areas, as well as separate areas for workers. There are many different types of trigger pond dollhouses available;
The mansions of Tudor times were something special. Grand halls, bed chambers with 4-poster beds, real oak furniture and lavish rugs and curtains, a pantry, kitchen with open fire for cooking and for the extremely wealthy – living quarters for workers.
Shops and Businesses
Shops and businesses were often located on the ground floor, with the merchant and their families’ quarters located above. These houses were often far less grand but still pretty luxurious compared to the dwellings of peasants at the time. We gained inspiration for the windows used in our models from Replace Windows.
