1/5 Model of Strasbourg Cathedal Clock for sale on Ebay

This is a beautiful piece of work. I'd love to see someone able to purchase it and pay for the restorations then donate it to a museum, or donate it to a museum for them to restore. ;__;

I'm surprised no French museums or galleries have championed the cause, but maybe the seller hasn't tried to contact any of them... throwing an artifact up on Ebay seems kind of like a cop out way to get rid of it...

its a one of a kind and boy is that special. shipping would be about as much as i could afford on that baby, but what a PIECE !! thank you so much for pointing it out, i would never had seen it. its like a museum piece, why isnt the royal canadian art museum buying it? maybe they are selling it. its not the kind of piece you just have lying around ..you think? there is alot of dough in t.o.,

that's beautiful, but it does seem odd that they're selling it on ebay. :\ ah well, it's not like many have that kind of money laying around, so it'll probably go to a museum owner or something like that anyway.

not to mention the insane shipping for something that weighs that much.
