Modern Miniatures

Hello Readers,
It's been a while and I haven't had much time to make minis. As you may already know, I am collecting items for my Victorian dollhouse and so far I have resisted other eras but......

Well I came across this set on gumtree and I couldn't look away! This is volume 3 of the "Design Interior Collection". There are 9 items in this collection. I'm quite impressed with their details.

This collection is many miniature versions of Charles and Ray Eames famous designs.

Well its the closest I will ever get to one of their designs.

So the hunt is on. I'll be hanging out on eBay I'm sure to find the other sets.

Do you collect any of these and if so what's your favourite piece?

    1. Thanks Giac, I think it was a great find. I managed to get them at what I thought was a reasonable price and it ends up I think I did ok. Some sets are going for double what I paid on ebay. IndyPoppy

  5. I love these chairs! I've toyed with the idea of getting some of these, but somehow I've always stopped myself at the last minute. I'm glad you indulged, though, and I hope you have fun hunting down the others in the series. :-) xo Jennifer
