From bolts of material to a little pincushion with the tiniest pins and needles. This unique diorama is a perfect example of attention to detail. The wooden floorboard floor has the appearance of age and wear over time, and exposed beams in the walls create a cosy atmosphere with a leaded light window reflecting the warm glow of a little side lamp. The outside of the diorama is also finished featuring beamed Tudor external walls and windows.
Measuring a mere 8 ½ inches wide 6 ¼ inches deep and 8 ¼ inches high this fascinatingly accurate diorama of a Sewing Room is a work of art.
The construction is made of wood and board. The bottom is covered in felt so it does not mark any surface. All accessories listed can be removed.

This diorama is not intended for children to play with. It is made with care to be treated as an interactive art form and collector's item.
The lamp lights up and runs from a small button battery. I cannot ship a battery to outside of the UK due to airline regulations. So I will include an extra accessory for you instead, you will need to purchase your own button battery CR1632 that is easily fitted in the base of the lamp which unscrews.
If you live abroad I will post this item international tracked and signed . If you live in the UK I will send it signed for with Royal Mail.
I do hope you like my departure from the usual suitcase diorama.
