A Tasha Tudor Art Stand Made by Seth Tudor!

A Lovely Art Stand to Display Things Upon!
 
The Corgyncombe Courant is thrilled that Seth Tudor made a reproduction of Tasha Tudor's art stand for us!

 The art stand is beautiful and is perfect in the library for displaying books, cards, photographs, and art. It is also useful in the kitchen whilst cooking or baking for holding your receipts (an old word for recipes) or cookbook.

In the photograph above, "The Tasha Tudor Cookbook" is open to the page titled "Accompaniments". This is one of Diane's favorite illustrated pages in Tasha's cookbook, with many of Diane's favorite things.

Diane has always admired Tasha Tudor's art stand. Last winter, before Christmas, Seth made a miniature art stand for little Tasha. Diane was hoping that someday Seth would make her a full size art stand and he did!

Little Tasha is looking at an illustration of a Corgi licking a candy cane, with ribbons and holly all round. The book stand that holds the corgi illustration, is a miniature copy of the one Tasha Tudor had on her artist's table. It was made by Tasha Tudor's son Seth Tudor.
 
Little Tasha was named after Tasha Tudor because The Corgyncombe Courant was reminded of the portraits of Tasha Tudor when she was a girl painted by her mother Rosamond Tudor.

Little Tasha's miniature art stand was featured on Day 8 of "The Days Until Christmas: Amelia's Favorite Things" Advent Calendar.

Seth Tudor made the delightful miniature reproduction of the chair Tasha Tudor sat in whilst at her artist's table.
