Pollock’s Toy Shop – The Grand Visitoria Tinsel
First produced in Victorian London by Theatre publishers, Theatrical portraits were souvenirs of live theatre. Tinsels, as they were known, featured the celebrated characters of the live stage. They could be taken home to be coloured in and embellished with gold foils and glitter.
The pack contains an illustrated sheet of the ‘Grand Visitoria’ story by Charlotte Cory, 6 black and white x A4 prints on GF Smith 340gsm art paper, including 5 plates to colour in and 1 x theatrical frame created using an original Victorian toy theatre wooden printing block. Also included are a pack of gold ‘dresdens’ – scraps for ‘tinselling’ your portrait.
Please note, the coloured sheets shown are examples and the framed image is an original Victorian Tinsel
