Little details

I've not done any work on the Hall for some time now as I can't find bedroom wallpaper that I like so I thought I'd show some pictures of items that are maybe lost or not so obvious when looking at a complete room shot.

The safe sits at the back of the Study looking just like an ordinary cabinet until you open the little door. This is where the title deeds to the Hall are kept.

These little specs were purchased online and even have little lenses. The case is made from very soft leather.

The Housekeeper's Accounts Book is a 12th scale copy of an accounts book correct to period. The detail is amazing and it's bound in very soft leather. I also purchased, from the same artisan, Mrs Beeton's book. Again this is an exact replica of the original.
