This girl, Sara Rothe was an 18th century art collector from the Northern Netherlands. She is famous for being the owner of two dollhouses.

One of them is now displayed in the Netherlands at the Frans Hals Museum and the other at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

Sara Rothé was a dollhouse owner who spent most of her time on decorating and showing her cabinet.

The two dollhouses were probably inspired by her house in Amsterdam, Keizersgracht 474, and her summer home.

The dollhouses had a fancy interior. At this particular one the dining room was stocked with every kitchen gadget from knives to forks and plates, all from pure silver.

The library of the miniature house was stacked as well. It had miniature-sized books and on the walls of the house actual miniature paintings done by real artists were hanged.

The dollhouse valued at $12,000 is on display at the Netherlands Frans Hals Museum in Harleem.
