18th Century French Diorama, Christ Church, Oxford

About

Charming 18th century French diorama with hand colored copper plate engraving. In original shadowbox with gold leaf ripple frame. Though titled on the reverse "Vue du College de Ste Marie et de Hotel de Ville d'Oxford," (College of St Mary, Oxford), I'm told this is actually a depiction of "Christ Church, Oxford with the 'Martyr's Memorial" to the right. With decoupage flowers in the foreground, two cutouts of a noble couple in the mid ground and the engraving of the College in the background.
