i "met" a German lady through a facebook-group about minis. She was looking for somebody to make an old stove for her in 1:24 ! I offered to give it a try...also having in mind, that if she might like something more professional or different...Caramel will be very happy to have his "right-size" kitchen! As you can see...he has already started making cookies! :)
These old stoves are called "Kachelofen or Kachelherd" in German, meaning "stoves/cookers with tiles" , they were very common in older days- perhaps still are in many houses today, more modern , but still ever so cosy and comfortable! I am sure all Dutch and Scandinavian friends here will know! :)
As i said, this is a first try, also first time i tried making something so very small. I had found the measuring of a real one , which was 1 meter 55cm in height,1 meter 45 cm broad, stove and heater together...so i scaled that down to approximately 6,5 cm high. Originally these pieces are "stuck" together..but i preferred to make them seperately in order to see in which way they look better! How good that in a dollhouse you don't have to be so strict about the oven-pipes! :)
The "tiles" i composed after having found pictures on the internet, and printed some sheets...seperate "real tiles" will look nicer of course!
Now..1:24 is really small...even my smallest "cook-book" looks large here! :)
There are many tiny details still missing...but i just had to show you! :)
just in order to compare the sizes, 1:12 and 1:24 !
