The Story Of Bertha & Ralph Wright Plus Their Miniatures Revealed!
This story began for me back in 2016 when I received a bundle of unusual dolls house furniture from an online auction, which resulted in this following article called “A Collection Of Miniature Treasures Made By Bertha & Ralph Wright”, that appeared in the online magazine of Dolls Houses Past & Present website.
Then four years later, through the power of the internet my plea for more information about the Wrights and their miniatures was answered twofold, as not only did Richard Wright (grandson of Ralph Wright) kindly get in touch, but so too did Patrick Daw (grandson of Bertha). Huge thanks to Richard & Patrick, and their respective families for all the information that they gave so generously and freely, without which the article would not have been possible. You will find the article in its entirety on my KT Miniatures Journal (ie. blog), although please note that for logistical reasons I had to split it into two parts, as there was so much to tell. It is quite a long read and I hope you enjoy this story of two amazing people who not only made such beautiful dolls houses and miniatures from the early 1930s, but who mixed with well known artists, writers, poets and socialites, including many characters from the Bloomsbury Group.
