Thorne Rooms

Most of us in miniature have heard of the Thorne Rooms.  For those of you who haven't here is some information on them.  And those of us who know of them, please enjoy again...

The 68 Thorne Miniature Rooms enable one to glimpse elements of European interiors from the late 13th century to the 1930s and American furnishings from the 17th century to the 1930s. Painstakingly constructed on a scale of one inch to one foot, these fascinating models were conceived by Mrs. James Ward Thorne of Chicago and constructed between 1932 and 1940 by master craftsmen according to her specifications.

Please watch this fascinating video and be amazed at the detail and wonder of it all...
