A delightful Victorian diorama of a ship or barque with a wonderful painted seascape, C.1870.
The model has been well put together and has some lovely details, including a ships figurehead. The naive painted scene depicts a cottage by the shore, a shipwreck and a lighthouse on a cliff, simply charming! The lid removes to allow access inside. All scened in nice ebonised display case, in good original condition all round.
