For his career from 1916 to 1934, she starred in more than 60 films, but unfortunately, many of her films have not survived. Although we can’t see the movies with her, the memory of Colin Moore is living through her other passion is dolls.
For the love of dolls, she spent a fabulous sum of money that she earned in Hollywood to create the Dollhouse of their dreams, the cost of which now amounts to about 500 thousand( 7 million dollars. The house was built between 1928 and 1935, in the midst of an acting career Colin. It was created by 100 designers and artists.
The house is not small – more than 2 meters high. Actually it’s more like a mini-castle. The real prototype this castle does not exist in nature – it is entirely created by the imagination of their creators, inspired by the architectural wonders of the world. The house has a staircase like the Spanish steps in Rome and a mini version of the Round table of King Arthur. On the ceiling of the Great hall painted with scenes from fairy tales.
In the chapel hangs a Russian icon, decorated with emeralds and diamonds. There are in the house and the statue of the Egyptian goddess, ISIS. Dining set in the kitchen similar to the one you can see in the doll house of Queen Mary at Windsor castle. Is there a cornerstone, which is a bar of gold, laid by the mother of Franklin Roosevelt, Sarah.
The best materials were used in the construction of the doll house – there are doors of ivory, and floors of rose quartz and jade. In the chapel you can see the stained glass Windows and the Golden altar, and a Large exhibit hall, a tiny gun that shoots silver bullets. There is a tiny platinum ring with a diamond so small that it will not pass through even a thin needle.
Some items inside the house are real historic exhibits, including the Egyptian jar of paint for eyelids, which is 2 thousand years.
The house has all modern conveniences, including electricity. House light bulbs the size of a grain of wheat twisted into tiny Golden chandeliers which decorated with precious stones. In the bathroom, from the taps runs running water.
The house is approximately 1,500 miniatures, including the original paintings of artists – one of them was painted by Walt Disney himself. Here you will find an entire library of tiny handwritten books, including the smallest ever written Bibles. Is in the house and on the radio.
