This significant building in Paris was built between 1860 and 1875 on the plans of architect Charles Garnier. The model looks challenging. It is built to swing open to reveal inner details. I suspect that support will be required in strategic places to keep everything firmly and accurately in place.
The model was purchased directly from L'Instant Durable in a special format. The model was packaged with a poster, a very informative book on the history of the opera house and postcard miniature. It is hoped that the book can be incorporated into the base of the display model.
