At the Show - Outhouse and Art Doors

A dealer at Good Sam for more than 14 years, Dr. Ken Byers, Shaker Works West, is sharing his new 1:12 scale Americana outhouse and Art Doors with us. Ken's latest structure "The Olde Mill Chocolate Factory" (circa 1900) will be featured in the March-April 2013 issue of Dollhouse Miniatures magazine. Don't miss it. mekendar@pacbell.net, www.shakerworkswest.com

The American Privy is a lighted 5" x 7" (plus frame) classic piece of Americana to hang on the wall. Students will build and paint Ken's delightful Outhouse at a workshop on Thursday, April 18, at the 2013 Tom Bishop Chicago International Show. Space will be limited so students should sign up early.

Ken's lighted museum quality Art Doors include a New York Brownstone, an Italian Tuscany house, and a collection of Mexico's historic San Miguel de Allende doors. Many date back to the early 1700s. Cast in composite materials, each piece is meticulously hand-finished in original colors. All of these wall hanging doors are approximately 8-1/2" x 10" and framed as shown. This first series is limited to 25 reproductions of each door and is offered at $375 each.
