We would like to offer for your consideration this miniature Dutch sterling silver shop, which includes over 20 pieces of sterling silver. The box itself is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. It has a glass front that slides open and overall is 8" deep X 11" high. The front is 16" wide while the back is 11" wide. The interior of the shop has a glazed window, wainscoting, a fireplace chimney, and an exposed beam ceiling adorned with cornices. The fireplace mantel is supported with sterling posts and a sterling hearth and grate.
The sterling silver pieces include two picture frames, teapot with lid, coffee pot with lid, three plates, bucket with lid, slant front desk with divided interior insert, scalloped oval tavern table, settee, rocker, two chairs, captain chair, piano, spinning wheel, planter on tripod feet, and another small piece. There are Dutch hallmarks and what is most interesting is all the detail incorporated in the pieces. The spinning wheel already has some red yarn and turns by the foot pedal; the desk has a slant lid which lifts open and the back gallery and apron are decorated with scalloped designs; the seats on all the chairs, rocker, and settee have the appearance of woven seats; the piano candle holders swivel and the cover over the keys lifts up. What a lovely display piece for miniature collectors or a lovely room for miniature dolls to occupy. The scale is slight smaller than typical 12" scale. The piano is 2" wide X 2" high; the desk is 1 3/4" high X 2" high. The condition of all the silver pieces is excellent. There is some veneer loss on the box.
