For the 2016 Tom Bishop show in Chicago, April 14--17, Jimmy Landers introduced his 1866 project. After being asked to create a custom recreation of the “Charmed House” set in San Fransisco, California by the TV series named “Charmed”. The ‘Charmed House’ is in central Los Angeles at 1329 Carroll Avenue. It isn’t actually in San Francisco as depicted by the series. Jimmy never accepted the commission but became interested in the old Victorian house from the pictures on line. He decided to create his own version of the “Charmed House” and calls it his “1866” and later changed it to “The Sabia”. Although it did not sell at the Tom Biship International show, it had a tremendous amount of interest and as Jimmy says---”A lot of Ooohs and Aaaughs” It did sell soon after the show and we delivered it to it’s new home in Philadelphia in July. Jimmy named this project “The Sabia”.
Jimmy installed a number of two candle wall sconces using my flickering LED replacement screw-base bulbs. This made the entire house flicker as if there were gas lights throughout. Also take note of the custom kitchen made by Terry Harville. All of the stained glass was designed and made by Barbara Sabia for which the house is named for.
