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

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.

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
