Object details:

Object ID MDL0022
Description Architect's model of one of the domes of Greenwich Hospital. It is in two parts, the full base and a half section of the dome, and differs from the version constructed in some details. The model is assumed to have been built for Sir Christopher Wren, as was MDL0021. While there is no documentary evidence for James Smallwell as the maker that is a possibility, since he appears to have made that one.
Date made circa 1696-99
