I am unsure of this dioramas age, although the glass is not wavy like I would expect, possibly it has bee replaced when the paper around the edge was applied. I am uncertain of its age or origin. The piece is not signed. However, in spite of the above mentioned, this is an incredible , charming village diorama, complete with billowing (cotton) smoke coming out of one of the cottage chimneys. The sky is an appropriate blue and the ocean and clouds are wonderful. the cottages are all intact and take you right into the charm of the sea side life. Measurements: Height: 6.5 inches Width: 9.5 inches Depth: 4.25 inches Paper around edges shows signs of age and wear. The box is made of wood.
