Scale 1/144

Years ago I bought two miniatures in scale 1/144, they were the first miniatures that I saw in this scale, and I found them pretty at that time, then I thought to do my first try in that scale, indeed I started to do it, but I faced a problem with the lights, I choose the lamps which they call rice grain, but I found they warm to much, and then I put the work apart, but I will try to finish it in future, one more project to add to the others.....

These are the miniatures I bought in this scale

This is the project I intend to finish

As this work was done years ago  now I know I will have the opportunity to do a better work, I´m not happy with this one now that I see it.

(The fireplace and the painting are not ready)

This is a work that needs some dedication, but now I think I have some more materials adequate for this project, so I will try to put them among the others.

Vintage findings

For the moment I´m still organizing my studio and future work, so for the moment I will profit to show you some  recent vintage findings.

Porcelain plate showing an autumn scene -  the harvest, suitable for this time of the year. I think it was one of the plates of a lamp shade with the four seasons of the year, it only shows its beauty when put against light.
 I  can imagine how beautiful  should be the complete lamp,  may be  in sec. XIX

Cross stich embroidered purse, scissor and needles in a display, the purce needs a little repair work but it is lovely, the flowers are stiched with thread with a velvet look, it was a bargain I found.
