This masterpiece of art, architecture, and design ain’t no child’s plaything and is a modern version of the cabinet houses owned by women of a certain social class throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.

This extraordinary custom-built 9-room hardwood cabinet house created by master builder Jimmy Landers is a masterpiece of miniature art, architecture, and design with exquisitely designed rooms including a 3-story grand foyer, a 2-story wood-paneled library, a dining room, parlor, master bedroom, and a guest bedroom. Darren Scala from D. Thomas Fine Miniatures is representing Mr. Landers on the sale of this piece and is accepting all bona fide offers, though it is estimated it may cost around $100,000 USD.

Stunning example of dollhouse design and architecture

LED lighting is strategically placed throughout the cabinet to create a combination of both natural and effective lighting effects which help eliminate shadows. The chandeliers and sconces use traditional incandescent light bulbs for a dramatic look while the stained glass pieces are lit by a custom lighting panel created exclusively for The Sahlberg to create a natural lighting effect. Several rooms have additional live base plugs for additional table and floor lighting. An extensive electronic system using both round and tape wires was created in 3 sections with 3 power sources using DC current with easy access located underneath the cabinet table.

Multiple-level foyer and wood-paneled library

A dramatic 3-story grand foyer with curved staircases made with hand-turned spindles and mahogany banisters leads to a stunning stained glass center dome by Barbara Sabia. Mahogany wood and marble flooring, coffered ceilings, brass chandeliers, triple stained glass windows and plaster fireplaces (some featuring faux finishes) are just some of the intricate details which comprise this masterpiece.

Hand-hammered copper-coffered ceiling

The library is highlighted by a stunning coffered ceiling with hand-hammered copper panels and hardwood beams accented in black and an equally impressive beveled paneled ceiling on the lower level lined with decorative timbers.

Tiered brass center hall chandelier and stained glass dome

The entranceway floor is made with over 2000 individually placed marble tiles and secured with traditional grout. A stunning 2-tiered custom brass chandelier hangs overhead, created by Linda Orleff.

Tiered Victorian all-brass chandelier

An ornate custom Victorian-style two-tiered all-brass chandelier with milky white acrylic globes casts a soft yellow glow in the library, as do several coordinating sconces flanking the second floor paneled doorways.

A spiral staircase with an inlay wood base, brass rod baluster, cherrywood treads with an etched design, and a curved hardwood handrail leads to the top level landing.

Center hall view up to the stained glass dome

Stunning stained glass center dome by Barbara Sabia decorated with hand-cut lead and a combination of beveled, glue chip, and frosted glass textures. The Dome measures 13″ long by 3″wide with natural illumination effects by Carl Sahlberg.

Exquisitely appointed rooms with plaster columns

The dining room, parlor, master bedroom and guest bedroom complete the cabinet house, each exquisitely designed and handcrafted to include all brass lighting fixtures, real mahogany flooring, textured wall papers, floor-to-ceiling triple stained glass windows, recessed ceilings with plaster appliques, and ornate fireplaces with granite hearths and gold-trimmed mirrors.
