Barnum American Museum Model

Large scratch built vintage Barnum American Museum model, all in ply with a lead roof (and a metal lifting ring). Appears to be an artistic representation of the actual museum in New York City in the mid 19th Century. Obvious signs of age and use, with a few missing pieces which could be easily recreated, but really rare and most probably made for a commercial display.

Measures: 70cm tall x 45cm wide x 50cm deep
