German Retro

I recently bought a bulk lot of furniture through an on-line auction simply because I liked the look of it. I think I'm going through a bit of a retro phase.

When it arrived I was even more thrilled as the furniture was so much better than the photos on the auction site. The furniture is really good quality, made of good quality woods and is just "cool"! At first I thought that maybe it was hand made because of its quality but when I looked closer at some of the items there appeared to be details that looked commercial.

Imagine my surprise when I found some of the items on the web and found out they were 1950s/1960s miniature furniture by a German firm called Crailsheimer. I still don't know much about the firm and still have some research to do but I thought I'd share some photos with you.

I have temporarily housed the items in my Bodo Hennig attic/house turning it into a retro holiday pad.



I don't have a lot of time for miniatures at the moment or for keeping up with blogs, mostly because my daughter is right in the thick of dance exams which she has been working towards all year. It is always a busy time with a lot of last minute practise. She sits one exam next Friday and one next Saturday.

I am hoping to do some more work on my sister's gallery this weekend. I'll post some pictures when I have something worth showing.

Have a great weekend.
