Bungy, this is very nice! But my question is how big is it? You say it’s a spice box, so I’m thinking it’s 1-2 feet tall. But in the pics it looks full size 6-7 feet tall. Or is it dollhouse size? Inquiring minds need to know! I’ve always thought a mini high boy would make a neat jewelry box.

That’s got to be full-sized as I don’t think they make bottles of wine for doll houses. :-)
This is a fantastic piece, to say the least!
Did you start with a yellowish base of the anilene dye, then proceed from there?
