Shown here are eleven different pieces of 1/12 scale fine wooden furniture made by Al Cushman. Included is a Shaker style dresser, desks, tables, chairs, a butcher block, a couch, and a trunk. This is no regular dollhouse furniture, these pieces were exquisitely made for serious collectors and the quality is outstanding. 

Retired marine Joe Haring was a sailor and a craftsman. He and his wife, Jan, shared a passion for building and furnishing miniature houses. Though often referred to as dollhouses, they are actually scale model stages built to showcase both the craftsmanship of the builders and the decorating skills of the collector. Typically built at a scale of 1”=1’, the various structures in the Haring collection include correct architectural details from staircases to gas meters, and even tiny accessories like fuse boxes. Many of the furnishings were made by other skilled craftsmen who specialize in building miniature furniture for collectors.
