My Biggest Miniature Yet
Pictured above is a Tynietoy Chippendale sitting on a miniature carved Chippendale Chair. The larger version here was a recent purchase at an estate sale. It measures about 2 feet tall and 12 inches across.
The chair is carved from oak and the seat is upholstered in red velvet. I am considering recovering it in a more traditional fabric.
The chair seemed like an interesting place to display my smallest miniatures. I have a 1/144 scale house and all of its belongings.
I acquired most of the pieces from a fellow miniaturist who had recently purchased in bulk, 'tons' of the lead miniatures.
Everything you would need to set up house - from kitchen, living room, bathroom, even a bassinet and a vacuum. There is even a small wishing well for the yard.
