WW1 Trunks In 1/12th Scale

Seeing us all going about our daily business wearing poppies at the moment has inspired me to create some WW1 vintage style trunks.

These trunks have been created in 1/12th scale and would be suitable for a miniature loft/attic room, spare bedroom, secondhand junk shop, charity shop etc. Each one is filled with a Union Jack that looks like it could do with a wash, all kinds of WW1 ephemera including postcards, leaflets, letters. books and some old photos, etc.
The lids can stand up on their own or be pushed back further if they are supported, in order for the contents to be viewed clearly.

I have chosen the contents for these tiny set pieces carefully to reflect the whole poignant theme of these brave and gallant young men going off to war to fight for their king and country.

The trunks will be released for sale at The Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition & Fair which is taking place next Saturday 12th November. If they are not sold at the fair then they will go up for sale on KT Miniatures after the event.

Thank you Robin and Sandra. Not sure if the pics do them justice though. My camera has been playing up again. Celia
