We have an antique, circa 1899, folk art wooden model of the renowned French architecture, Notre Dame Cathedral. Each wooden trim and pillar is

nicely hand-carved and fitted, all made from scratch, with no indicators of a ready made kit! It’s not hard to see the time, effort, and love that went into making this detailed masterpiece. Even the rose windows are ornately applied, made from what appears to be a shiny, sheet like material, adorned with paint to mimic the ornate design of cathedral windows. Each molding and frame creating the two towers, pinnacles, arcades, and gables are original wood. In addition, the beautiful and famous west facade of Cath├ędrale Notre-Dame de Paris has several miniature clay figurines attached to the plinth- there’s a priest, and several Frenchmen in period attire.

The cathedral is on a wooden plinth, measuring at approx. 11.75 x 18.25 x 9.75,” and the cathedral itself measures at approx. 12″ h x 10″ w; weighing a sturdy 5.8 pounds! There are places of wood glue formation or solidification, the tips of the pinnacles are chipped off, wear of the wood is apparent, and its apparent that some of the clay figures have detached, with one chipped off. Otherwise, a truly amazing folk art piece. You won’t be disappointed with this Notre Dame miniature scale wooden model! Happy Bidding!
