Under the sign of a .... chamber pot. ;) Pod znakiem...nocnika. ;)

That's exactly my first thought of a title for my next post - for this post that is.
I don't even have to explain anything, all you have to do is to look at the latest commission.;)

Funny thing was to be asked to create three miniatures for the chamber pot. :) Again I have learnt quite a lot from this work.

You see, the piece to the left and below is based on the child commode chair from 1700-1800 made in England.

Even more interesting is the story of the high chair to the right (and below) for this one is based on Johannes Verspronck's "The Boy sleeping in high chair" painting from 1654.

Here is the original painting.

I couldn't find any information about this low chair in the middle but of course this one was made for young children.

This time the furniture are in walnut colour and as usual are firnished with lacker.

Hope you will like them all no matter their use!


Taki tytuł przyszedł mi do głowy jako pierwszy, gdy pomyślałam o tym poście.
Właściwie to nawet nie muszę niczego tłumaczyć, wystarczy jak obejrzycie zdjęcia. ;)

Stworzenie trzech miniatur "około" nocnikowych było całkiem zabawne. I jak to zwykle bywa przy zamówieniach, czegoś się nowego dowiedziałam.

Otóż mebelek po lewej stworzony został na podstawie oryginalnego child commode chair z Anglii powstałego w latach 1700-1800.

A mebelek po prawej powstał na podstawie obrazu Johannesa Versproncka z 1654 roku.

Niestety nie dowiedziałam się niczego o najniższym krzesełku, ale jego przeznaczenie jest dość oczywiste. ;)

Tym razem zostałam poproszona, żeby mebelki były w kolorze orzechowym, dodatkowo wykończone zostały politurą bursztynową.

Mam nadzieję, że pomimo przeznaczenia tych mebli będą się one Wam podobały!

Whoever commissioned these... thanks from the bottom of my heart because he/she made you work out these very special pieces. Wonderful work... and very interesting because it's always great to get a glimpse into historic every-day life.

Ilona said...

What a special commission, Ewa, you did a great job on this 'special' furniture ;)!
Ages ago the chair on the first picture, the one on the right, was well known in the old Dutch interiors. Some of these models also had wooden wheels under the backside, so they could easy be moved through the room.... The other models are not familiar to me, but they are wonderful pieces of your craftmanship, (uh, craftwomanship ;)!) well done!!
Have a nice weekend!
Hugs, ilona

Dear Ewa! I can't believe I missed this post!!! Where have I been???
I think these tiny "potties" are adorable! The painting is surely one of a kind! I think you have accomplished amazing results from your research.... your "seats" look so Real!!! (I hope nobody has to really use them...!)
Sorry I am so late!

Hi Ewa,

I know it's been a while, but I'm glad you're making such interesting and (ahem)! 'personal' miniatures.

Hey, like the children's book says: Everybody Poops. --Even dolls, I guess.
