The Folly (or Pavilion), in the style of Louis XV, is based on an original building which is located at the entrance to the Parc de Bagatelle Paris. Standing behind ornate gates the Folly is one of the most iconic small buildings France has to offer. With its curved walls, copious amounts of carving and beautiful proportions it is easy to fall in love with her and has been a delight to reproduce in 12th scale.
See our brochure for more detailed information
The wall lights are NOT included in the kit btu when they become available Folly customers will be offered a 40% discount on all Folly related items including the lighting.
The Folly is supplied in kit form, unpainted ready for you to assemble and paint. We always prebuild your house before sending it out to ensure that it fits together. We call this a "dry build" then we disassemble it and pack it. When you receive the Folly you can "Dry Build" it to see how it assembles but also to give you some idea of how you want to decorate it.
The Folly is made to order and due to the complexity of its design we are limited in how many we can make in a month. We therefore have to advise you that we can not despatch to you same day and depending on orders there could be a waiting list. We shall keep you updated and let you know when we can despatch it. Please contact us directly if there are any issues.
The Painted Folly
You can choose to have the Folly assembled and painted. I only have images of an old aged Folly but I can paint it to be neater or grubbier depending on your taste. However if you want to purchase the next stages when they become available then then you may want to consider having the internal ornate decoration added (we shall be designing this in 2020) and then later the gardens which would consist of gates, fencing and various fancy flourishes yet to be decided. The gardens can only be created on the larger 100cm x 700cm base. If you choose a painted option then I shall contact you for more details and we can discuss your requirements further.
The Folly is a heavy and bulky item to despatch and so additional postage fees are listed below. Please use the drop down menu to choose which carriage option applies to you.
- UK (not highlands or Islands) £35

My apologies for the price of carriage - we shall do our best to shop around for the best deals but we have to send it using professional companies such as Fedex or UPS.
IMPORTANT: The above are the best we could find and are generic for your country/area. Please note that for some EU countries and also if you are in an out of the way place we may be surcharged - we shall let you know how much before posting and will where we can absorb the additional charges. ................ please be mindful that when the courier arrives he will require some help.
If you are not happy with your purchase I shall refund the price of the Folly on receipt of the returned item. If there are any issues please let us know. Should the Folly arrive damaged then you should let us know immediately. For this reason I would strong urge you not to sign for the parcel as "received in good condition" which is the default position of most companies.
