This is a cabinet that I purchased at a consignment furniture store about 5 years ago. It has kind of an Asian feel with black lacquer and gold trim. It has a light in the bottom under the frosted glass shelf. The cabinet resides in the corner of our family dining room. At first I used to display my Tynietoy collection in it. Then when I found a home for my Tynietoys, I decided to displayed all of my dining room sets that didn't have "homes" yet.
More recently, I started keeping my Stuart Library collection and a few other library pieces pieces on the lower shelf. I will probably end up using these pieces in my Victorian house. My Stuart pieces can be seen here: http://tulsatinystuff.blogspot.com/2010/01/my-stuart-library-collection.html
The other side of the lower shelf also houses a few pieces that I will probably end up using in my Victorian House. The light colored table and chairs, and cabinet for sure. I picked up the light metal Victrola at an estate sale in Tulsa. It says Spain on the bottom. I have my two Petite Princess floor lamps here for now.
The upper shelf has a few miscellaneous pieces that I got in a box of items from an auction in England. The red colored stain set has some chairs that I imagine in my dining room in my Victorian House. I need to find a table and some other furniture that goes with them. Any help would be appreciated!
I purchased the dining table on the left at a garage sale. They are all marked "Classics" It is very nice and delicate and appears to be walnut. I may end up selling it, its not really my "style" I purchased the writing desk and tall wardrobe on eBay a few years ago. I found the tall display case with the curved legs at a "State Day" event in Oklahoma City. I like to imagine some expensive jewelry or find art in there once I find a home for it. I have had the large tilt-top table in my collection for about 20 years. I found it at a store called Zimms in Salt Lake City Utah. The two glass covered cake dishes were from another auction in England. I am waiting for something special to use them for.
I like the cabinet in the dining room. Although it looks like a used furniture showroom inside, it is a good conversation piece and is one of the areas outside my miniature room where I display pieces.
