A Rare Dolls' House Lithophane
A marvelous and hard to find piece, this lithophane is made of a pewter/pot metal. The lithophane itself is made of porcelain and has a carved scene which is only visible when the back side is illuminated. For our purposes of viewing the scene, I merely have to put it up in front of a light! Here we can see a young girl playing with rabbits. In the dolls' house, you would place a candle in the back which has an attached candleholder on the back of the stand. Lithophanes are an exciting topic and one which I enjoyed writing about in one of my newsletters. (I would be happy to send that article with the lithophane to the buyer).
