some new lights as well
Getting some more new items ready - this time a Deco style light fixture, which has a background made using French banding from the 1930's - we won't see anything like it again.
same light - one off one on, about 2.5" 6cm in diameter
about 2.75" or 7 cm in diameter
The second light can be a vanity or dressing table light - it would also work as a chandelier I suspect. The centre is a glass mirror. It's a tad hard to see, but the backing is a black hexagon shape. Both fixtures use LEDs
I've working with miniatures professional since 1998, focusing on original modern work especially lights and furniture. I also do film/book themes,federal/Georgian and other period rooms or just about anything else a client dreams up.
Before I started miniatures full time I ran a small consulting company (database and system design) and before that I was a policy analyst for the provincial government and - yes - before that a psychologist and before THAT a teacher.
I started my post secondary education in engineering,changed to psychology and ended up doing graduate working first in psychology and later in administration. All of which ties in DIRECTLY to miniatures - I think.
