40s Apprentic piece

made in Australia, c1940s

Isn’t this a beauty? Designed to hang on the wall with brass fittings on the back, this oak miniature bookcase is an apprentice piece. It wasn’t until I photographed it that I realised the bookcase is in the shape of a stylised dog.

The last owner of the piece has used Dynamo labels for whatever collection used to grace the shelves. I’ve left the tape- quite a nice addition – and styled the shelves with some of my own miniature collection [some of which have featured previously on this blog.] The napkin rings and egg cups give you an idea of the scale of the shelves.

The solid oak timber is in good condition, as are all the timber joints and fixings- the apprentice having done an excellent job. The brass hanging fittings are ready to take two screws fitted into a wall- it’s ready to hang.

The apprentice piece is for sale- and would suit a dog-loving miniature collector! $AUD225
