ITEM- 1992 (or 1982) Ben Holland DH Miniature Welsh Cupboard +23 pcs of Jane Graber Stoneware DESCRIPTION- Artisan Collection. This is just a fabulous Welsh Cupboard by Ben Holland, signed & dated 1992 (or maybe 1982).
It has an excellent aged patina & is a very pleasing piece of hand-carved furniture. It is filled inside & out with an ample supply of wonderful blue & white stoneware by artisan Jane Graber.
These pieces are in the 1:12 Dollhouse Miniature Scale. It has a molded cornice & a nicely scrolled border. It has three working drawers with brass hinges.The pottery is all Jane Graber's wonderful work & includes two vintage mixing bowls with bread dough in them dating to 1985. You will love this piece!
It's even better in person. The cupboard measures 6 & 15/16" tall X 6" wide X 1 & 9/16 deep. CUPBOARD MAKER- Unfortunately, due to Ben Holland's last name, researching him is nigh impossible. Every search brings up dollhouse miniatures from Holland & I'm an excellent researcher normally. I was able to find a different type of cupboard by him & some other pieces, but the sellers added no information about him.
He did a great job with this piece & the other I saw. If you know anything, write me.STONEWARE MAKER- Jane Graber, is a member of the IMGA (International Guild of Miniature Artisans), has been making miniature replicas of 18th- and 19th-century American salt-glaze stoneware for more than 35 years, hand-throwing each piece on a potter's wheel, then painting and signing her work. She is internationally recognized for her craft, has been featured on the cover of Ceramics Monthly, and regularly does solo and group shows in the U. Her work is extraordinary; she is widely recognized as the best living miniaturist potter & without question is definitely the best in terms of stoneware & redware. In the later-1980s, Jane began hand-throwing replicas of early American sgraffito redware, which is quite popular among her collectors and others who love Americana.
Her pieces have great potential for increasing in value & I completely adore them. CONDITION- All but two pieces of the pottery is new & in excellent handmade condition with no damage. The two vintage bowls from 1985 with the bread dough are also in excellent condition. The cupboard is in excellent vintage condition with no issues. This piece is neither reddish nor greenish, just a wonderful antique walnut type color like Tudor pieces.
