Charbneau has traveled the world three times and now owns more than 300 objects in his collection of miniatures, some of which are a one-thousandth-of-a-watt electric light bulb and a seed containing thirty-three carved elephants.
On a white napkin placed in front of him are several of Charbneau's tiny objects. In one hand he holds a rifle that is only slightly longer than his finger. There are several other objects including a little glass jar and some tiny animal figurines of a cat and some mice.
Photograph appears with the headline, "He Seeks Out Tiniest of Curios," Los Angeles Times, 19 Feb 1934: A2.
