Miniature butcher’s shop on Antiques Roadshow

December 13th, 2011

Among the items included in Sunday’s episode of Antiques Roadshow was a miniature butcher’s shop display dating back to the mid 19th Century.

The show came from Layer Marney Tower, a Tudor house in Essex this week.

The miniature featured the frontage of a butcher’s shop complete with hand carved and painted cuts of meat hanging up and even a butcher’s block.

The upstairs windows above the shop frontage were hung with net curtains and featured a hand-made chandelier that helped date the unique piece to the 1850s.

Resident expert Adam Schoon described the miniature as “a classic bit of folk art” and went on to value it at between £7,000 and £10,000.

There’s a link here, and the miniature appears at the 5 ½ minute mark.
