Judi made a “sketch transfer” to be used each time this piece is painted to keep the Oliver Wight house and its setting true to proportions and hand paint the building on every piece. The back side features the Rufus Porter wall mural which is original to the house, where she has taken the “STYLE” of Rufus Porter and winterized the scene and changed the buildings to these antique german toys which were toys of the time period. This entire scene is hand painted each time. The toy villages are based on historical collections seen in Colonial Williamsburg and Winterthur.
