The chateau has six rooms and measures 42 inches high, 67 inches wide and 20 inches deep. Only the finest miniatures and materials were used - real crystal and gold, luxury woods, sterling silver. The table is set with porcelain Sevres plates, real glass goblets, and sterling silver cutlery. The walls are decorated with 22-carat gold leaf and tiny oil paintings. Over 10,000 hours of work went into creating the masterpiece.
Mulvany and Rogers have been making miniatures for over 25 years and are known for their miniature recreations of real castles and mansions. Based in Holt, Wiltshire, England, they travel around the world researching their projects. They are exacting about the details, even including fireplace soot and dust in the corners of rooms.
"The mood, the lighting, wear and tear are all considered. It all counts to making a true replica," says Susie.
