PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A delightful jigsaw with an evocative illustration recalling the rising popularity of glasshouses, orangeries and ‘winter gardens’ as exotic, indoor retreats in the 19th century. Joseph Paxton (1803-65), designer of Crystal Palace, created large-scale glasshouses but, as materials and kit-form technologies improved, smaller scale conservatories came within reach of the middle classes by the end of the 19th century. For example, the miniature, suburban estate of Sunnycroft in Shropshire included a fine glasshouse by Halliday & Co., 1899 - once elegant and aspirational it is now, sadly, in need of conservation with the National Trust mounting an appeal for its restoration.
