ROBERT E., 92, of Lafayette Hill, PA, passed away peacefully on Nov. 13, 2013, at Chestnut Hill Hospital. Beloved partner of Charles F. Reim for 62 years. He is survived by 7 nephews and nieces and their numerous grandchildren. After serving in WWII, he received art training at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and began his own decorating business in 1959. By 1970, however, he changed to working in miniatures rather than full size under the name of Dolphin Originals. He focused on creating miniature furniture, custom-built roomboxes and doll houses. For many years he taught classes and sold his work at the Philadelphia Miniature Show. He is known for perfecting the technique of making miniature wicker pieces, for his decorative custom finishes, elegant parquet floors and beautifully proportioned roomboxes. His work is featured in many museums through-out the country and in various private collections and miniature publications. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Whitemarsh Foundation, P.O. Box 538, Lafayette Hill, PA 19444. Interment was private and a life celebration will be announced later.
