Crystal Palace

Mainly at the instigation of Prince Albert, & built by Sir Joseph Paxton to house the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park, the Crystal Palace was an engineering wonder of the age. It was later dismantled and re-erected on a site in Forest Hill, Sydenham as a permanent exhibition centre. In 1936 a small fire spread rapidly along the dry wooden flooring to eventually totally destroy the entire structure. There is a proposal that it should now be rebuilt !
These kits were reported to have been sold in some central European hotels and at the Great Exhibition in London of 1851. This one comes complete with revolver, silver bullets manufactured by Belgian gunsmith Nicolas Plomdeur, garlic powder, silver dagger, ivory cross, mirror, Professor Blomberg's New Vampire Serum and wooden stake etc. in a mahogany box.
