Product summary

Item #137769 (in stock)

Our fabulous, limited edition Patricia Breen ornament is inspired by English Drawing Room of the Victorian Period (Decorated for the Holidays) in the Art Institute of Chicago's Thorne Miniature Rooms.  These fascinating models were conceived by Mrs. James Ward Thorne (American, 1882-1966), and painstakingly constructed on a scale of one inch to one foot between 1932 and 1940.  The mouth blown and hand-silvered glass is exquisitely hand-painted in the artist's studio in Poland.

6 x 3 3/8 x 2 3/4 in.

    My niece has always loved the Thorne Rooms and over her lifetime we always make them a "must-see" when visiting the AIC. She has a family of her own now and I when I saw this ornament I knew she had to have it. She loved it and I'm sure it will become a cherished ornament on their tree!

    The Breen ornament is absolutely beautiful. It is probably the best in my whole collection of several hundred by Patricia Breen.

    Fine ornament, and the little room is unbelievable. I keep coming back each year to see your exclusive Breen ornaments. And, I don't just look; I buy. Hope you maintain a long relationship w/ Patricia Breen.

    This ornament is spectacular. As other reviewers have said, the detail is exquisite and almost unbelievable in the small room. If you love this exhibit in the museum, this is a must-have!!

    Wow! Received the Thorne Room Santa and what an amazing work of art. There aren't enough words to describe the detail. I have been collecting Patricia Breen ornaments since 1995 and it just keeps getting better. There is no one that does holiday ornaments to this level that even compares. Thrilled with this piece.
    Thank you to the Patricia Breen Studio.
