Reginald Twigg, the creator of the Rose Mansion replica, devoted five years to researching and constructing the impressive work of art. He spent 10 days at the Taipei museum putting the finishing touches on the grand display.
The replica stands over a meter tall and two meters wide. Apparently, except for its scaled-down size and the fact that the people and the horse-drawn carriage out front are just models, the exhibit looks almost exactly like the actual residence. The creator made sure the materials used for the parts are similar to the ones in real life. I will point them out as we go through the pictures.
My Favourite Character- The Trinket Seller
The Attic-Nanny's Room?
This is such a cute room because granny is playing with her doll's house.
I really like the chair behind "belle".
I think the billiard table is extraordinary work!
Master Bedroom-Rose's Bedroom
The quilted blanket reminded me of the one that Mercedes made for Sylvia except hers are nicer. This one is corny, don't you think? It's got the USA flag, I believe.
Really like the dresser at the side.
Fireplace at the left side of the room and the beautifully carved mirror above
Girl Preparing for Bath
This girl is modestly hidden at the entrance to the bathroom and it is not possible to get a picture of her with the entire room. I adore her underclothes and had to show her off here.
The 2nd Parlour-Drawing Room?
I don't really know why this room is called the Library since there are no books that I can see but the banister work in here is magnificent. The piano in here is apparently made with the same material as a real piano.
Dining or Tea Room?
The trivets and plates on this table are all procelain or stoneware.
The Front Hallway
This is a very bad picture because the room was too badly lit but the fireplace is exquisite so this horribly "doctored" picture must be shared.
