miniature in Scozia

§ Andando verso la Scozia non potevo fermarmi a Carlisle dove si trova un negozio di Dolls House Emporium.
Francamente il negozio è stato uno delusione ma il Museo delle Miniature annesso....
Beh, quello è fantastico.
In teoria non si potevano fare foto ed io sono stata una brava bambina.
Non sapevo che Walter, con il suo telefonino, stava fotografando tutto quello che poteva!
Ho scelto quelle migliori, purtroppo non rendono granchè l'idea della qualità delle miniature esposte ed è un vero peccato.

La room box sul fondo, con il tavolo Regency e le pareti chiare, è stata fatta da Mulvany & Roger e credetemi sulla fiducia se vi dico che è perfetta e meravigliosa.
Così come i mobili intarsiati della Stanza Francese.

Going towards Scotland I could not help stopping at Carlisle where there is a shop by Dolls House Emporium.
The shop itself has been quite deluding but the Museum of Miniatures nearby....
Well, that is fantastic !
Truly it was not allowed taking pics and I behaved myself like a good girl.
I did no know that Walter, with his mobile, was shooting at anything he could !
I have chosen the best ones, alas they do not give the real idea of the quality of the miniatures and that's truly a pity.





The one at the bottom with the Regency table and light coloured walls is made by Mulvany & Rogers and trust me if I tell you that the plasterings and paintings are flawless and wonderful.
As well as the furniture with marquetry work in the French room.

Oh, what a wonderful smile you have!

Even with a phone camera you can see how exquisite the workmanship is!

Thank you, Walter, for taking them!

Hugs,
Marsha

Sooooooooo happy to see you back :). And Walter, you the best :):)..yea, I am bad with rules too but frankly, I think not much harm was done (?) as hand phone does not have flash and if more people see these pictures, maybe the museum will become more famous and more will visit (theory of free music on internet). Is this "A World In Miniature Museum?"

The pictures you pick are great, Rosanna but you said the Doll House Emporium is no big deal? O dear, my friend is thinking of buying something from their online shop (dollhouses) for an event.

Say thanks to Walter from me as well for taking all these wonderful pictures! Some of them I wouldn't have believed were miniatures if you hadn't told us!
And hope you don't mind me saying so, but you look really beautiful!

I have missed you so much Rosanna, welcome home!!
A very big thank you to Walter, I am not very happy when you pay your money to go to places like that and they don't allow you to take photos....I to am a 'good girl' and follow the rules....but it doesn't mean I am always happy about it!So I am pleased there are people like your Walter!!
