Q

Do you have judges’ comments for a 1980’s miniature class entry in the Flower Show?

Is there a historical record of exhibits, in particular, of miniature rooms? I am interested in a full description and information on a room called "Conservatory at Rockwood" from approximately 1982 to 1990. This miniature was created by Mrs. Henry W. Farnum (Edith Claypoole Sellers Farnum). She made it sometime after 1981, modeled after her mother's family home "Rockwood" in Delaware.

Elinor was able to find the judges comments for the 1986 show for Class 133, entry B :

FAVORITE PLACE:  MINIATURE CLASS - 1ST PRIZE "ROCKWOOD CONSERVATORY"

Edith Farnum (Mrs. Henry W.), Comments: “The Planters Superb!  Lighting excellent.  Detail work great.  Artful use of background.  Exquisite plant material.” We have a slide of this miniature accompanying the comments.
