Assemblage miniature solitary house made from a vintage wooden clock case, with many intricate details.

The piece has the title "The Taxidermists Daughter", inspired by the book by Kate Mosse.

Small 45 cm high, 28 cm wide, 18 cm depth, wooden vignette.

A small three dimensional wooden assemblage which draws you in through the use of secretive and intricate details, giving the feel of a silent house, worn with age; telling the story of a forgotten time. The rooms have been embellished using collage, acrylic and found miniature pieces emphasising age and patina. Above the fireplace is a vintage hand crafted embossed copper strip. A busy studious desk stands next to the fireplace. Many more intricate details to be discovered. Upstairs another painting of a mother and child nestled among collected glass pieces. Three areas of the house are lit by concealed LED lighting, adding atmosphere.

The house leaves room for its own story with the use of imagination.

The lighting comprises of two 3 volt LED bulbs with battery (replacement batteries can easily be found on Amazon or at your local store).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Can be used as a small night light.

Carefully and lovingly packaged.

    WINTER MOOD ♥︎ Silver trees, silver bells, silver dresses.. still bitten by the glorious winter blues and hues. A gorgeous display during the past Christmas, these gowns were PERFECT next to my miniature silver tree. The nostalgia. ♥︎ Every pleat and fold: perfection. Winter is my absolute favorite season and Sue's glorious gowns are a sweet ode to the arctic season that literally does not exist on my side of the terra firma. But a girl can certainly imagine. ♥︎ Kissed by Sue's lithe hands, her creations evoke love. Undiluted love. ROMANCE is my favorite word to describe this incredible artist. Every single piece worth cherishing time after time.. even the ones that do not fly over to my threshold. Simply looking and adoring makes me healed. Sue's creations are my sacral chakras. Thank you for everything Sue. HUGE HUGS! ♥︎
