Charles Dickens House

£28.00


The Charles Dickens Museum

Charles Dickens and family lived here at 48 Doughty St. WC1  from 1837 – 1839 and is the only surviving Dickens home. It was a gated and liveried street at the time, and the family could afford to live here only du to the popularity of The Pickwick Papers at the time.  It is now open to the public and houses a  large collection of material relating to the great Victorian novelist and social commentator.  We also produce a Nation of Shopkeepers’ version of this building which we launched in  2000 at the Museum with the Collectors’ Club, in the company of Cedric Charles Dickens.

The Heritage Dickens House stands 13.4cm (Just over 5″) tall, and features a lamp-post on each side with the silhouette of Mr. Pickwick to the reverse.
