Of all romances in miniature… perhaps this is the best shape in which Romance can appear..’ so said the fabulous Lord Byron in one of his many journal scribblings and as an artist AND a passionate devotee of Regency History who loves to create a scene and not only of the hysterical kind; it is perhaps only to be expected that I would create a Regency inspired miniature.
Inspired by the life of the poet – the Ghost of Piccadilly is the story of a 12th scale historical house which has enjoyed world wide recognition – however, the story is FAR from over!
Follow me as I step inside Number 13 and return to the year 1815.
I’ll take you into the fabulous world of Lord Byron and that of his family as he lived at 13 Piccadilly Terrace as I share the story of this remarkable house and as I recreate his lifestyle in miniature as faithfully as possible – you’ll learn something of the dazzling Regency ere too!
And with plans for the ‘Piccadilly Terrace Gift Shop’ nearing completion, there will be an opportunity to buy and enjoy a ‘little something’ including letters, portraits and other historical ephemera – both real and imagined from Number 13 for yourself or a loved one.
If you love the Regency era and are captivated by a time synonymous with elegant romance and are fascinated by historical characters and would love to peep behind closed doors and hear tales of scandal and intrigue or you want to step into another era of ravenous appetites and hardship – this is the miniature world for you!
