Few things I am looking for if anyone knows


Recommended Posts

Maybe someone has seen them. I am looking for a few 1/24th scale items for my memory house.

Rubber tree plant

Copper bed warmer

Chess set.. I think I can make the table but ideas for the chess pieces would be very welcome.

A bathroom radiator

Ceiling roses.. and some ceiling paper. I have a some ceiling papers which are quite commion but have seen pictures in houses of others and can;t find them.

A couple of fireplaces, good quality.I have a few but I think there are nicer ones out there but have had no luck finding them.

 

Thank you all in advance XX Jeannine

Shapeways has radiators 

https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace/miniatures/interior-models?q=Radiator&sort=&facet[pdcId][]=96&facet[price][min]=1&facet[price][max]=2500&facet[price][from]=1&facet[price][to]=2500

 

I thought they had 1:24 chess pieces, but no.  MiniEtchers sells a 1:24 scale chess or checker board.

Fireplaces can be kits or ready made. Search Etsy and eBay. Red Cottage Miniatures has several nice fireplace kits. Braxton Payne of course has nice ones ready made and he will age them if that’s what you want.

SDK Miniatures has a rubber plant: https://sdkminiatures.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=43_51&products_id=591

You can get it as a kit or already finished.

And Braxton Payne makes very nice fireplaces: http://www.braxtonpayne.com/2017_Publish/2017_Publish/2017_FIREPLACES/2017_FIREPLACES_HALFINCH.htm

 

Thank you, there are some nice fireplaces there.Certainly some to order. The rubber tree doesn't look right though, I have never seen one with white on it/ and I am only familiar with the solid green one I wonder of there are variations.

If you send a message to SDK with a photo of the variety you want, I'm sure they could do a custom rubber plant for you.  It never hurts to ask!

Sue Cook Miniatures is another great place for fireplaces.  The fireplace in my Fairfield's parlor is from her.  She also has plaster ceiling roses.

In one of my many dollshouse DIYbooks there's a section on using polymer clay and old brooches to make molds for casting plaster of Paris mini ceiling roses.

I have sent an e mail to SDK  to see if they can do me a plain green rubber plant,but had a chance to look at all her plants and I could not believe my eyes when I saw she had 1/24 scale snowdrops.They played such a big part in my childhood, she also had the lilacs I needed, so a million thanks to you for this wondrous link.My memory house thanks you too!! My Mum will be up there tearing up about now I think.
