Miniature furniture kit EMPIRE SOFA Small Pleasures dollhouse fine quality wood NEW

For sale:

A Small Pleasures miniature furniture kit. 1:12th scale. Create your own heirloom miniature treasure for your dollhouse or room box. 

Dimensions - Length: 4" x Height: 2.5" x Depth: 2" New, unopened dollhouse miniature EMPIRE SOFA kit - 1:12 scale "Small Pleasures" brand, Australia. ~ purchased approx. 2000 - 2002 ~ Dimensions - Length: 4" x Height: 2.5" x Depth: 2"
Sometimes we have the best of intentions. I was going to use this in my room box art gallery, but purchased one already made. This kit has the original price of $18.55 from approx 2000-2002 - so it's over 10 years old, but kept packed away during that time. Time has come to clear out some of my 'stash'. The wood has some lovely carved pieces to it - but as far as I can see you can stain it to whatever you want. The photo on the package shows the wood in black, or a dark stain. There is foam for the seats, but I don't see any fabric. I did think that it was included, but if not it gives you the choice of using your own. With this kit you can create your own heirloom OOAK piece of fine quality 1:12 scale furniture."

"An experiment with ACEO creation. I combined a miniature dollhouse painting with an ACEO. The image is of one of the swamps found in my travels around Georgia. It was close to Savannah, Georgia - coastal. A fun work, and quite unique." By Jillian Crider.
