1940s Hospital Ward Scene Now Complete - Step back in time!

Back in October I featured on here an unusual commission that I had been working on and promised to show you more when the project was complete. Well I am pleased to say it is now finished and my customer was delighted with the result!
There are so many photos that I thought it would be easier to feature it as a slide show....so here we go....from the very beginning as just an empty Victorian smokers cabinet, through all its different stages.... to its completion as a hospital ward based at Xmas in wartime Britain during the 1940s. It was great fun to do!


Special thanks must go to Robin Britton of Coombe Crafts for creating Mr Patient and Miss Nurse http://www.coombecrafts.co.uk/

Hope you like it!

Fantastic, so much detail! I love the lamps and the tea trolley and the decorations. Can just imagine a night nurse sitting here with the glow of the lamp, having a cuppa to keep her awake :-)

Thanks for your kind comments ladies. Welcome Lady Jane to KT Miniatures Journal.

Rebecca, my lovely customer was quite specific in what she wanted which was really helpful. Researching for this particular scene was fascinating. Although in the end I had to say that by pure chance I was watching Atonement (the film) and found the hospital scenes totally inspiring. Celia
