Tiny Chairs at Manheim Ruseau

9-mini-chairsThese are not for your average dollhouse – unless your doll lives like a classic designer in a 1940s New York apartment.  Jane Templeton was the founder of Don Ruseau furniture which is now Manheim Ruseau.  Ruseau was one of the first authentic fine reproduction furniture made in this country that really promised to keep the value of an antique.  Think precurser of Rose Tarlow or Quatrain. An exact replica of three rooms of Jane’s apartment in miniature will be on display at the Bright Group – opening party is Thursday, May 14, 4-6.  It’s a beautiful and touching tribute to 75 years of fine furniture – but not looking backwards.  There will be plenty of new pieces on the floor.
