A 19th century ship diorama.
A charming beautifully executed piece of folk art, the double sided glazed display case with an exceptional craquelure patina to the original painted finish. The ship within sits on a bed of foamy sea & boasts some wonderful detail to the rigging with life boats occupying the upper deck.
A wonderful thing, hands down one of the best pieces of folk art I've had the pleasure to own.
Wear commensurate with age, very good overall, totally untouched. The glass sides of the base unusually slide out so very easily cleaned inside.
Collection in person preferred, UK courier service possible, please enquire for details.
