The Thorne Rooms were developed in the 1930s and 40s by Mrs. James Ward Thorne, Chicago, IL, who loved dollhouses as a child. After extensive travels in Europe where she collected miniature furniture and accessories, Mrs. Thorne had over two dozen miniature rooms created by cabinetmakers from her own drawings. They were made in a scale of one inch to one foot. She painted and stained woodwork, papered walls, and made textiles for the rooms. The Chicago Institute of Art has 68 and several were
decorated for Christmas . This one is the - English Drawing Room of the Victorian Period, 1840-70 .

The Thorne Rooms! I went to John Herron Art School in Indianapolis and they had several Thorne Rooms in the lobby on permanent display. I was fascinated with them my entire life.
