A charming and very detailed miniature diorama of an 18th century English country house. Hand painted background and stunning details to the house model, with several characters and farm animals. A side green house, a bridge in relieve over waters on the back panel. And tons of little details, too many to describe !!! Notice the post sign that reads “to Islington / to London”. This model seems to be commissioned by Theophilus Rayfayre an antiquarian and proprietor of the house. Original glass case in very good shape. Signed on it’s back in pencil but really difficult to read. A one of a kind piece.
Dimensions: 27 ½" wide x 13 ¼" deep x 14 ¼" tall.
Item No. E2264
