This detailed bookend has a
great story and strong design and has always been popular. The complex entrance
includes the statues of Queen Victoria above and Prince Albert below. The museum
of decorative art and design was first opened to the public in 1852 following
the success of London’s Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace.
The Victorians were obsessed
with improving the empire and felt a need to lead the world in all things
including the drive for better industrial design and the Victoria and Albert
Museum was designed as a huge storehouse of reference and inspiration. See the
Royal Ontario model bookend of Toronto, also in this
Hand-made, architectural model, with intricate detail. It is ready to display and enjoy.
