Lilliput Lane, founded in 1982 by David Tate, was a company known for its extensive range of realistic miniature handmade models of real English and Welsh cottages and scenes. It has produced models ranging from The Tower of London and Tower Bridge to small fisherman’s bothies. The models have sold in over 50 countries around the world.
Usually, based on a real building, the creators carved the Lilliput Lane Cottages in wax, with individually added-on stones and shingles. From that model, they made a silicone mold. And finally, the creators use cast Amorphite, which is a Lilliput Lane invention, to produce the cottage.
