Missing the PBS show, Downton Abbey now that the series is over? Longing to have a nice place to store all of your diamond, gold and other jewels? Lord Grantham loves his house and you can too. A team working for the Queen’s nephew, David Linley, has recreated a wooden miniature replica of Highclere Castle in 10,944 pieces of maple marquetry. Created in a limited edition of just five, the cabinet has 72 square finials are turned on an ornamental lathe which ensures symmetry on each piece. Can’t afford the £65,000 (close to $100,000) price? I wrote previously about some Downton Abby / Highclere Castle souvenir replicas. I also found a plastic castle that illuminates and nice porcelain ornament and more from PBS. Also of note, the David Linley company creates Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello as a miniature architectural cigarhumidor.
