Bring a 3D capture of Newport home to your mantel! The Washington Square design is comprised of 9 incredibly detailed slides that fit together to create the 3D "tunnel book" effect. A fantastic souvenir to travel with, the pieces come unassembled in a compact, plastic wrapped sleeve with simple directions for when you are ready to display. 

Today, the Colony House is a National Historic Landmark, and the fourth oldest statehouse still standing in the United States. It is owned by the State of Rhode Island and managed by the Newport Historical Society.
 
The Colony House and Washington Square are both well loved by locals and have been featured in a number of films including the upcoming Hocus Pocus 2! 
 
Dioramas were commissioned from Banko Box LLC which seeks to "pay tribute to tatebanko, a 17th century Japanese art of making scenic dioramas out of paper. We bring this historic craft to contemporary audiences by cutting recycled cardboard into fun-to-assemble mementos that capture the essence of place."
 
Made in the USA, the assembled dimensions are 3.75" x 5.75" x 2. 
Appropriate for ages 7 and up.
