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.
