French Pavilion

French Pavilion debuted at Philadephia Miniaturia

The French Pavilion suggests the architecture of the French Chateaus.  Details include the Corinthian capitals on the fluted columns, the external frieze with swags, ribbons, and cupids, the internal frieze with cherubs and swags. 

The floor was made from individually cut squares of countertop laminate in hunter green and beige marble patterns.  The structure is electrified and has a 12-light chandelier and sconces on each column.  The base is covered with patterned stone.  The roof has plexiglass panels to allow natural light in the structure.  The 'walls' are glass between the columns.  The glass has been removed to allow for better pictures.  The Pavilion is built in 1:12 scale - 1 inch = 1 foot.  The base of the structure is about 19" square, and 18" high.

The furniture in the structure is courtesy of Petticoat Porch.
