The dolls' houses, which also featured specially created art by the likes of Grayson Perry and Chris Ofili went under the hammer at London auction house Bonhams on 11 November, with some selling for more than £10,000
The star lot was a house called 'This Must be the Place' designed by superstar architect Zaha Hadid, which went for £14,000; not far behind was A Dolls House by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, which netted £11,000.
