Fine Art Painting & Drawings of the beauty of the British Isles

This drawing of an historical building, executed in pencil graphite by Welsh based artist Vladislas, is offered as a Fine Art LIMITED EDITION reproduction by Vlad-Art, featuring the Old Market Hall in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England. This drawing shows with incredibly great details this Elizabethan building situated in the town centre of the county town of Shropshire. A previous Market House was in existence on the same site in the 1260s, used by wool merchants as a place to sell their fleeces but this building was actually demolished to make way for the Market Hall of today: The large upper room was originally used by the Shrewsbury Drapers Company to sell Welsh cloth but was later used as the town's magistrates court until 1995 while the lower floor was used by farmers to sell their corn.

The Old Market Hall was erected in less than four months in 1596. It bears the Royal Coat of Arms of Queen Elizabeth I with the English lion and the Welsh dragon as supporters. This outstanding structure is made of Grinshill stone from . It is made of Triassic sandstone which has been quarried at Grinshill, a small village and civil parish in Shropshire, since at least the twelfth century and was described as the pre-eminent building stone of Shropshire. It has been used most notably to make the lintels and door surround of Number 10 Downing Street, the headquarters of the Government of the United Kingdom. 

This is a limited edition reproduction produced to the highest print quality and comes mounted, with a certificate of authenticity and inclusive of FREE recorded delivery in the UK.
