Ham inside a crocheted ham bag from Room 6 - Kitchen, Basement Central Section, Pendle Hall. From right side of central kitchen table.
It was created by Felicity Clemons as part of a 40 project to create a grand fully-furnished Georgian style country dolls' house. The project began in the 1940's when Felicity's daughter, Antonia, was given a three-room dolls' house by her grandmother. Mrs Clemons was not happy with its scale or authenticity and so began a rebuilding project which resulted in a four storey grand house, now known as Pendle Hall. Although some items were purchased during shopping trips to Melbourne, the majority of furnishings were constructed by Felicity's own hands, using numerous reference books and magazines.
Carved wooden ham painted white with floral and geometric design in green red and black imitating crochet with a paper frill at the end of the leg. Sitting on a white plate with coloured stripe design.
