Through the idyllic countryside, across the moors of yore, amid the Gothic ruins, and down a cottage lane—no matter how you place the panels from this classic myriorama, a seamless scene awaits.

In the mid-1820s, enterprising London publisher Samuel Leigh enlisted John Heaviside Clark to create this sixteen-plate myriorama. Clark painted scenes representing no particular place but instantly understood as British. The result was a sophisticated toy that brought delight to ladies and gentlemen in drawing rooms throughout Britain. Thanks to a copy of the original that resides at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, this antique is back!

How it works
Lay panels side by side to create your own landscape. Construct specific scenes with a few panels, or bring them all together to create a narrative filled with the twists and turns of country life in the early nineteenth century. Use the numbers on the bottoms of the panels to record and re-create your favorites. The options are nearly endless—20,922,789,888,000 arrangements in all!

16 panels to mix and swap. Create seamless vintage scenes in nearly endless arrangements.

Panels: 3 x 8¾ in. Box size: 6½ x 9¼ x 1 in.
