It's not quite the wardrobe to Narnia...

... but boy is it close!

I CANNOT sing high enough praises for the work of Tony at


He works mainly in 1/12th scale... but I asked him if he'd be willing
to make me a 1/6th scale wand cabinet for
the Majokko Shop, and he agreed...

and this is the beautiful piece he created:

It is made from antique English Walnut timber which was originally
part of a Victorian writing slope that was broken and beyond repair
so the cabinet is made of solid walnut dating from around 1880.
  
Ella decided to do a little modeling for me. :)

Inside there are 3 wands!
Two of them have Cornish Quartz topping them, the third has an Amethyst sphere.
Two are made of wood, one of bone (I'm sorry, I need a better pic of the one made of bone)
They are ALL beautiful.


(The wands are out of order... the Bone one should be on the bottom, and the crooked wooden one should be in the middle... I'm sorry Tony, I FAILED! *weep*)
Each wand has a painting behind it that correlates to the type of wand it is.




The corners are embellished with Paula Shell, which is very beautiful!

The bottom drawer is functioning and an excellent spot for storage!


In the center is a genuine carved Victorian cameo that was once part of a piece of mourning jewelry... this piece fascinates me endlessly.

This is by far, the coolest doll thing I own.
Tony is a master.
This piece is beautiful and filled with history.

THANK YOU, TONY!

... and anyone who hasn't clicked that link I posted at the top to check out Tony's work by now...
