James Damiani, an artist and collector from New England is looking to downsize his collection and D. Thomas Miniatures is helping to find new homes for Mr. Damiani's tiny treasures.

The sale includes a dramatic Georgian style period roombox featuring polished hardwood floors, an ornate center fireplace, fabric wall covering, wainscot paneling, a 6-panel milled door with lavish plaster relief and a breathtaking multi-level coffered ceiling highlighted by a glass and crystal chandelier. The roombox is contained within a lacquered 2-door Asian-inspired painted cabinet with brass hardware.

The 1/12 scale Georgian roombox is replete with the highest quality miniatures available for sale and made by some of the finest craftspeople of the 20th century including furniture by Alan Barnes/Tarbena (desk, chair and bookcase), Mark Gooch (long credenza), and Michael Walton (hardwood book shelf with fretwork).
