We receive alot of questions on where to find craft miniatures, this is an article I found in an old brochure written in the 1970 to promote these German products. It is a little dated now, but still holds true. Doris Dotz has hundreds of these miniature in stock and ready to ship, so get ready for a trip, back in time.

If you are looking for one of a kind art supplies for your business or for your clients, you should try taking a look at the web sites that display a comprehensive offer of European miniatures. And we are talking particularly about first class German vintage miniatures.

Whether you are a retailer of paintings, sculptures, photos and all kind of classic or contemporary artwork, or just a passionate collector, you should try something different, like vintage German miniatures. This means we will be taking a trip back in time and witness the passing of at least 50 years of human history, through the miniature universe of the artist that created these items, years ago.

Imagine that you are looking through the attic of your grandparents’ house and you stumble upon a chest that holds under his rusted lock a treasure that you will find amazing. These are the vintage miniatures we are talking about: genuine pieces that date back from the World War Two period.

This kind of art and craft supplies are the only ones left from the initial line of products. The creation process was an individual occupation back then. There were no assembly lines or such complex processes to create miniatures. There was only the ability of the artist, as well as a designer and a modeler, and also a painter, since all the products were hand painted.

Apart from the incredible artwork that involves creating such vintage miniatures, we should not forget to mention other important features. The variety of models and representations spread from animal figurines (wild animals, domestic animals, dinosaurs and mythological creatures) to human characters (different periods of time soldiers, civilians and fairy tales heroes) all the way to landscape products (trees, foliage and colored ballast) and railroading accessories (engines, cars, transported products, rail tracks, and much more). And in case you turn to be passionate about recreating a real scene, by using vintage miniature, you should keep in mind that every piece represents an exact scale, at the certain small size, with the real size replica. All the models are usually between 1:20 and 1:64 scale models.

When it comes to comparing art supplies such as vintage miniatures with modern time miniatures that do not follow the old way, the former definitely stand out. Nowadays assembly line products are no match to the hand made products that German masters used to make.

All you have to do is search the Internet for web sites that host e-commerce with art supplies such as the vintage miniatures we described in this article. And keep in mind that most of the miniatures are the only ones left of their kind. So be prepared to own a unique piece of art that witnessed modern history in an old treasure chest in a dusty attic.
