The Thorne Room Collection
The following pictures are of room boxes, in 1-12th scale, created by master craftsmen for Mrs James Ward Thorne of Chicago USA. The detail and workmanship is exquisite in all the room sets, and I would love to be able to achieve even just a little of the quality of these room sets in my own work! The room boxes are, I believe, available to view at the Art Institute of Chicago. They represent interiors from Europe and America dating between the late 13th century to 1930's. Please enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I have!
