At the Show - Modern Miniatures

Peter Tucker, Roomboxes Etc., Canada, has been a dealer at Good Sam the last few years. He focuses on original modern work, especially furniture and lights of his own design, with an emphasis on mid-century and later styles. Here are some examples of his miniatures. peter@roomboxes.com, www.roomboxes.com, roomboxes.blogspot.com
