Portrait of Petronella Dunois  1677

by Nicolaes Maes

In 1677 Petronella Dunois married Pieter Groenendijck. The young woman brought some extremely valuable goods into her marriage – stocks and bonds, of course, as well as stacks of napkins, tablecloths and bed linens. Also included were the dolls’ house and contents displayed here. This had been fitted and furnished in Amsterdam the previous year.
