12 ONE OF A KIND Pieces of Miniature Wooden Furniture: This lovely wooden furniture was made by an elderly Maine artist back in the 60s era. She did not use kits...every piece was designed and made by her hands as she replicated a full sized piece of furniture that she treasured or belonged to a friend. Vintage jewelry pieces were often used for accents or handles, bases and what not. She was an amazing artist and these pieces are truly "One of a kind" works of art in miniature!! She lived in a cottage on an island in Maine. You will be getting 12 pieces in all. The details on each piece is amazing and I am sure you will love each one. Please note: Most drawers and doors were made to open but may need a gentle help as they have been in storage for decades. Incredible condition on all pieces!
#1) Painted Hutch stands about 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 1 3/4" and has blue knobs on the drawer and doors which open! The plates on the shelves are buttons from the maker's mother's wedding dress which the maker painted!! These are floral blue and white dishes...So lovely!!
