The Ferd Sobol Editions
The Ferd Sobol Editions has been an admirer of the great master cabinetmaker George Hepplewhite for many decades and Ferd uses this valued inspiration in his latest editions of Dining Room Sets. The sets are available in two sizes: the 7 piece and the larger 9 piece sets. Both are 1/12th scale and fit well with many other furniture styles.
The 9 piece Hepplewhite Dining Room Set is perfect for a grand display in a larger dining room. Six side chairs and two armchairs fit in perfectly. Complimenting the slender tapered legs is a delicate rectangular spade foot. The shiled back chair is a lovely focal point adding timeless sophistication and neoclassical elegance. Beneath the table top are a number of design details, including geometric The sand charred inlay is one of Ferd's special little extras that always delights collectors, especially when they realize that each piece is individually charred by hand by dipping it into hot sand before cutting.
The Hepplewhite Two Seat Settee is the perfect cozy piece for a romantic tête-a-tête, as there is simply no room for the chaperone. It is petite enough to fit almost any place you would like to add a romantic touch. Hepplewhite furniture stylistic elements such as the shield shaped chair back, remain a classic standard in traditional furniture design and are much appreciated full size or as seen here 1/12th scale. Revered for creating a classic appearance, it is especially light and delicate creating a timeless nod to Greek and Roman antiquities. It was created to match the chair backs of the Hepplewhite Dining room Sets in the Ferd Sobol Editions.
Another new edition will definitely be available at the show. It is The Trésor Table, a place to hold your petite miniature collectibles in a secure and dust free grand display. It is shown here with The Federal Credenza The Hepplewhite Settees, The Demilune Table and The Hand Caned Chair.
