Pick of the Week: Miniature House

This week’s “Pick of the Week” comes from one of our favorite flea markets.  This is a prime example of a “diamond in the rough” in that when I found it a lot of the porch railings as well as pieces of the roof and other details of the house had come unglued.  Everything was with it though, so I picked it up for $100, which seemed very reasonable for a piece made with such beautiful craftsmanship.  This piece must have taken hours upon hours to create, and had to be a labor of love.

This little house is not a doll house,  The roof is removable, but the inside is completely hollow.  There is a small hole in the center of the floor on the inside that might have been for rigging lighting for the house,  This piece could have been an architectural model, a student model, or maybe even a very elaborate train platform model.  Whatever it was made for, it is simply adorable, and we all just love it.
