[John Joseph Griffin], England, ca. 1841
Collection of 24 cream colored biscuit porcelain crystal
models (size ranging from 3 to 10 cm) in contemporary
(but probably not original) mahogany case. Each has faces
stamped P, M and T and most models are identified in manuscript
on paper labels.
The models are not signed, but the material they are made
of and the stamped letters P, M, T are typical for models
made by John Joseph Griffin (ca. 1841).
Collection: private collection
