I haven't bought a lot of furniture or furnishings for this build yet, primarily because I want to build a lot of it myself. But I broke down yesterday and bought a couple of items at the Portland Miniature show because I could get them for quite a good price, and I was very happy with the detail and quality of both pieces.
I got several items at the show, but most were building supplies, and I am sure most of you have your own! So I won't bore you with those. :0)
Here is the first item I thought worth sharing. I am totally turned on by this writing table. It is intricately detailed and incredibly lovely.
The carving is exquisitely intricate and fine. Here is a shot of the end of the table, where you can appreciate the beautifully executed detail.
Finally, a top view, showing how beautifully painted the top of the table is. I now discover it is upside down, but I am sure you will forgive me for that.
I hesitated to buy this because I was not sure it was going to fit in the Grand Parlor, where I planned to put it. But then I got home...and tried it, as we all are prone to do, in the more complete Entry...and I fell in love with the way it looked there...
