Milk Can Chrysnbon Kit #M-158 Heritage in Miniatures 1/12th Styrene Model
Molded in black styrene. Removable lid.
Judy Berman founded Chrysnbon Miniatures in the 1970’s. She created affordable miniature furniture kits patterned off of her own full-size antiques collection. She then added a complete line of accessories to compliment the furniture. The style of furniture and accessories reflect the turn-of-the-century furnishings of a typical early American home. At the time, collectible miniatures were expensive because they were mostly individually crafted.
This line was basically the first company that specifically designed quality miniature pieces for the everyday collector. Ms. Berman continued to expand the line to include furniture and accessories for every room of the home, including living and dining areas, the kitchen, bed and bath. Although these items are all based on designs from the early 1900s, many of the items will also work on more modern settings. For example, here at miniatures.com, we sell hundreds of the 40-Pc. Table Setting each year. It is a timeless, affordable way to set a table for four; the all-white dishes are beautiful by themselves and also can readily be mixed with other tableware and colors to reflect different seasons.
The dollhouse furniture kits are perfect 1/12 scale. Plastic, also known as styrene, was chosen as the material because it provides intricate details and is affordable. The kits are easy to assemble and require few tools other than quality plastic cement as an adhesive. These kits can easily be accented with paint of any color to customize and truly make a one-of-a-kind collectible. Judy Berman sold the company to Dee’s Delights in the 1990s, and Chrysnbon items are now manufactured and distributed by Handley House in West Virginia.
