Shakespeare's House, Stratford on Avon

inscription:  Model of Shakespeare's House. Rd. No. 225833

width:  65mm, 70mm, 80mm, 85mm, 105mm, 110mm, 125mm, 140mm, and 185mm

notes:  This model, which was registered in 1894 and which is thus one of the first of the Goss cottages to be produced, exists in two basic forms: the old version of the house as it was before restoration, as shown in the right-hand photograph, and the longer post-restoration version as shown in the left-hand photograph. The 70mm, 85mm, 105mm and 125mm sizes, of which the last two are nightlight holders, are models of the old house prior to restoration, while the rest are of the restored full-length house, the 185mm size being also a nightlight holder. None of the models are known bearing arms.
