Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Chair. May 2015. SOLD.
Inspired by painted furniture by various designers. The elements are: mosaic mirrors, (Through the Looking Glass). Mosaic dish pieces on the front, Door Knobs (in the book they talked) on the top, Playing cards on the back of the rails.. (Remember the Queen of hearts had the playing cards paint the white roses red). I made the fringe from costume jewelry, coins, and chandler pieces. I found the flamingos (chain pulls) in a dollar store bargain bucket. (The Queen played croquet with flamingos as mallets). Shells and jewels and other mosaic elements all came from my junk closet of treasures. I embroidered the fabric in the center of the seat. and painted the checkerboard on the top rail. All hand work. I didn’t keep good track but i have about 70 hours in the piece.
Hope everyone likes it.
