This is a vintage unit in the red mahogany colour wood. This has velvet lined and filled drawers containing: Handmade birds eggs and skull in boxes Tiny semi precious stones and quartz 2 x Butterflies with tiny antenna Coloured Micro Shells Real tiny bones collected legitimately from the countryside Real genuine dinosaur fossil teeth (millions of years old) All items are fixed in place. Each individual egg is handmade.
I have painstakingly painted each egg to reflect the eggs as they are in the wild. Each little cotton lined box has eggs. The butterflies are printed using the finest quality paper. Unit: H 12.5cm x W 6cm x D 4cm I have tried to make everything true 12th scale and hope to have achieved a sense of realism. Each aged label is illegible.Collecting things was a very popular pastime in Victorian England. Egg collecting was eventually outlawed in the 1950's.
Butterfly collecting, although not outlawed, there is a code of practice for collecting these wonderful creatures today. Eminently suitable for a house, Museum, antique shop, Darwin style studies etc. This is is my own idea. Please do not copy it. THE DOLL IS TO SHOW SCALE ONLY AND IS NOT INCLUDED.
This is a 12th scale (1 scale) collector's item and is unsuitable for persons under 14 years. Doing that is against international laws. Please note that my miniatures are not real life sized items, but are dolls house miniatures meant for serious adult collector's and not designed or made as toys for children due to small parts, beads and glass. I do take great care to detail my items accurately and believe you will not be disappointed with my representation of any item.
