Guildhall Feeoffment School
Named Models (Not Numbered)
This model of Guildhall Feeoffment School, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk produced by Mudlen End Studio is not part of the numbered series.
The group of 4 smaller pictures in the grid below show other shots of this example of the Guildhall Feeoffment School made by Mudlen End Studio.
Guildhall Feeoffment School can be found on Bridewell Lane, Bury St Edmund's and is a Grade II listed building. One end of the model is marked with the script "Guildhall Feeoffment School 1843 - 1993. It is reasonable to assume therefore that the model was produced specifically to celebrate their 150th anniversary and may have been produced in relatively modest numbers.
An internet search will reveal a little more information about the school. Of particular interest are several early photographs that can be found on the web site maintained by the Bury St Edmunds Past and Present Society.
The model is very difficult to find [Scarce], and as far as I am aware, is not available in other colour variations.
It carries the standard Mudlen End Studio backstamp, but also has an additional stamp showing the name "Guildhall Feeoffment School Museum Bury St Edmunds". This example still bears the price label of £3. I paid little more than that when I came to search out an example for my collection!
