A place to share ideas and thoughts about miniatures, scale models, architecture and display my collections of Tynietoy, Strombecker, Tootsietoy, Halls, Kage, Kilgore &; Arcade cast iron, and a few other antique miniature finds and projects.
I was able to purchase a few items from a miniature estate sale in Oklahoma City last weekend. The estate sale included items from two collectors who had recently passed away.
I found these striped porcelain dishes that I have in my 1970's house with my Hall's Lifetime Furniture Collection. You can see my Hall's collection by clicking HERE
I also purchased a few odds and ends at the sale including this wooden bowl, a crate of grapes and a Reutter Porcelain juicer and toast caddy and the dishes shown below.
I purchased these green dishes for my 1940's Strombecker house. It has a green kitchen.
There was a box that had these dishes and the silver punch bowl below - I will find a place for them somewhere!
crackers & cheese ? ( A fimo find at a garage sale)
I have quite a bit of red velvet Victorian furniture, but I hadn't seen these chairs before, so I purchased them along with this Bespaq table. I like the Lyre supports on the table- maybe in a music room?
I found these Gothic arched chairs at a local antique mall a while back. Not sure where I will use them, but I like all of the intricate detail.
I came across this light oak carved cabinet and decided it might go nicely with these other light oak pieces that I have had for many years.( see below)
These mahogany carved chairs and tables below with white Damask Taffeta upholstery, were also at a local antique mall and the Bespaq trunk was at a garage sale that our local miniature club hosted here in Tulsa last month.
