45.  THE LONDON PUB
IN 1:144 SCALE

Nancy Froseth      Thursday  9a-5p        $65

 

A pub (public house) is license to sell alcoholic drinks.  In many countries it is more than a hand out for drinkers, it is a social gathering place.  Samuel Pepys, in his 17th century diary described the pub as “the heart of England”.  A 1393 law required pubs to have an outdoor sign.  This led to sometimes fanciful names such as “Pig and Whistle”, “The Cat and Fiddle”, etc.  This miniature pub is 1/144th scale and houses a bar and stools, bottle cupboard, three tables with benches, and is lighted from the second floor.
