It's been quite a while since these popped up on this forum, but I came across this today. Pretty cool stuff

Totally forgot about that. My bad. Here's another link to the Thorne Miniature collection in general, and I'll see if I can find something with regard to the newer piece I originally linked to.

Looks as though the builders of some of those interiors were copying Volker .... -- Russ

I think it might be the other way around. She was before this time. The Thorne rooms serve as an example to later dollhouse miniaturists (1/12th scale).     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissa_Niblack_Thorne

I was aware of the discrepancy in time. It was a "temporal anomaly" compliment. -- Russ

If you are in Chicago, the Thorne Rooms are really worth checking out. And while you are in the Art Institute, you could also take in some exceptional art...the building is full of it!
