Is The House of Miniatures kit #40023 the best miniature furniture kit ever? The Chippendale Broken Bonnet Highboy fetches the third-highest price among furniture kits on eBay. And the bidding is sometimes intense.
In October I accidentally paid a visit to the Midwest Miniatures Museum. It is located at the Gilmore Car Museum near Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, Michigan.
From the very beginning of The House of Miniatures, the designs were based off of American Colonial era furniture. Most of the Chippendale and Queen Anne kits were researched through the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. So, what was the nature of the Colonial Williamsburg connection?
