An outstanding and rare Lithophane of a boy and his cat. Ca 1860

EUR 675,00
Category: Antique Dollhouse Accessories
A marvelous and hard to find doll house accessory. This lithophane itself is made of alabaste/ carved porcelain This particular lithophane is mounted in a soft metal frame done in gold and green with its original early finish. The picture is solid mounted in the frame with 8 holders to the picture , that shows you the picture of a smallboy playing with his cat. When light is on , it illuminates the porcelain, so the picture can be seen in its beauty.( or when you have light coming trough from behind. This would be lovely in a window, with light coming trough. This is a rare lithphane and in very good condition. Made ca 1860. It is only 3" Tall x 1 3/4" Wide.( 7 cm tall and 4,5 cm wide. What a rarity! This is a rare piece in a wonderful condition. Mint, I would say. Made ca 1860. Often seen with the Rock and Graner furniture. I think this is one of the most adorable accessories for a dollhouse. Lithophane (Greek "vision in stone") is a porcelain engraving that virtually comes alive when lit from behind.The image is created by light shining through the different thicknesses of the translucent, kiln-fired porcelain; the thicker areas appear darker, and the thinner areas appear brighter.
