Something very special!

The Asronomer by Vermeer


Vermeer's " The Astrologer" 10" x 8-1/2 " x 3"


A premier piece in my line of fine art miniatures.

For all the Vermeer lovers, like me, I have fashioned this one of a kind very special 3-dimensional reproduction of his famous painting "The Astronomer". Forced perspective makes the miniature scene come alive with switchable lighting which perfectly reproduces the atmospheric environment that Vermeer was famous for. A year in the making, every detail is perfectly  rendered. the box is 8" x 11" with an easily removable dust front panel. Contact Ken for pricing and availability at

The Asronomer doll is by well known artisan Fern Vasi.

The Unique Victorian Folding Bathtub


Complete with on-demand hot water!

(Well, not really!)



You absolutely gotta love this one! This Victorian gem was popular at the turn of

the 20th century, and even the Sears Roebuck catalog featured one very much like this one. Fits perfectly in the smaller bathrooms of

the period and is a major attention grabber

in any miniature home.

3" x 7" x 1-1/2" closed

3" x 7" x 5-1/2" open



In just an instant it folds out from a beautiful cabinet into a lovely tub that just begs for some bubble bath! Great in a bathroom or as a stand-alone shelf feature.









The perfect piece for any olde kitchen but would be great in a work shop basement or garage setting also. Well aged butcher block top is set off by rustic iron bolts that hold the whole thing together.




It measures 4 1/2" wide x 3" deep x 3" high.
