Miniatures in Berlin (part 1)

Last week I visited Berlin and made a special trip to the Arikalex Miniature Museum to see some fabulous houses by the great Mulvany and Rogers (amongst others) in a display of 1:12 houses and interiors from the 4th century to the 20th century.  The museum was fantastic, though there weren't really any references to any of the makers as far as I could see.  I took a lot of photos though with the dimmed lighting (which showed up the lit interiors to the best effect) some photos were a little blurry.

I'll start with the miniature Sans Souci...



































The real Sans Souci in Potsdam...

The real!


















Here are the interior rooms, all miniature.


























More photos to follow in my next post!

I can't believe the amount of detail that's been reproduced in the miniature version - it's a real work of art.

This is an amazing model, I have seen some of it in my Mulvany and Rogers book, so it's good to see more of it here, thanks for the pictures!
