Miniature artworks – as seen on TV

March 6th, 2012

Sunday night’s episode of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ featured some wonderful miniature flowers which would grace any dolls’ house.

Made of metal alloy and modelled and painted by hand, the intricate and botanically accurate miniature flowers were the work of Beatrice Hindley whose creations are featured in the famous Queen Mary’s dolls’ house.

Beatrice was asked by the illustrious garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll, to make the plants and flowers that appear in the garden of the Queen Mary’s dolls’ house.  She also contributed to another famous dolls’ house, Titania’s Palace.

Beatrice’s pieces are highly collectible with individual flowers fetching up to £500 but the best collection of her work belongs to the Queen and is on display at Sandringham.

The episode of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ is available to watch until the end of the week and Beatrice Hindley’s work appears at 8 minutes 50s.
