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

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!

You may ask yourself: "Well, how did I get here?"
