I wanted to make an elegent Biedermeier-style roombox with the excellent kits available from MiniMundus. I decided to “set” the room around 1825, a period at the height of the Biedermeier movement.
By 1825, Admiral William Shore has had a long and distinguished naval career, and has impeccable taste.
His pretty young wife Cassandra joins him in his study for afternoon tea and a game of draughts.
The Admiral is pleased with his study, especially the marvellous display case for his trophies, and a writing desk so he can begin writing his memoires.
