Miniature Dollhouse Artist's Studio by La Rocca

This artist's studio by La Rocca is on sale right now! It will make an exceptional gift for any serious dollhouse or miniature collector. Contact heathermiller411@yahoo.com for details.

One look inside, and you will truly feel you are in a real artist's studio.

On one side you find a distressed wooden table with paints, real bristle brushes, cans of turpentine, a pair of eyeglasses. Look closely at the amazing miniature painting on the wooden easel, and you will see it is signed by the artist. And take a look at the still life from which it comes – the broken glass bottle, the perfect slices of fruit, the knife, sitting on the distressed wooden table.

Inside the fire place is real burned wood. Stacked against the walls – more canvases, tiny paintings, wooden frames, a broom. On a wooden stand you’ll find books, a bottle of wine, a roll of newsprint, a box with real charcoal. And there are many more special and amazingly realistic pieces throughout the studio, too numerous to describe.

On the wood floor sits a wooden box with pencils, erasers, exquisitely tiny razor blades. In another box – tubes of paint. A small stool holds a palette with paint and tiny palette knife. At the back, a wooden shelf hangs over an old porcelain sink stained with paint. By the window on the right, you find a sculptor’s table with sculpting tools and a wonderful, unique wire figure. On a stand nearby you find a sculpture in progress.

The studio is wired, with a wall sconce on either side of the stone fireplace, and two other working lights. It sits on a base measuring 25x15 inches. The studio itself is 18 inches across, 11 inches deep and 9 inches high. The glass lid lifts up for easy access. This art studio is a unique and wonderful piece.
