Steampunk Sewing Machine Mini by grimdeva Steampunk Sewing Machine Mini by grimdeva

Thanx for stopping by my gallery! This is my one of a kind miniature Steampunk Sewing Machine. A lovely gadget guaranteed to delight any tiny domestic diva. The piece is in 1:12 dollhouse scale, measuring 1 3/8 tall and 1 1/4 wide at the base.

The sewing machine is solid metal, altered with vintage gears and findings. There is a hand crank wheel, rivets about the base, and buttons and toggles all about. A gold filigree top spindle feeds wool thread and there is a lace and leather project in progress. The machine sits atop an ornate silver oval tray. The tech elements contrast with floral designs as Steampunk is a blending of the archaic and elegant. I painted it all in pewter, highlighted with gold, and then aged it with ink.

Thanx for all the interest in this piece. It seems to be the fav among my Steampunk line so far. I really liked my globe too.

:faint: 'Tis beautiful. Even though it's so small, there's still all that detail that I really love about these type of machines :love: ...I've actually got I think 5 antique sewing machines at the moment...
