I visited Shakespeare’s house in the 90’s. The decor on the front of the box somewhat mimics the the outside wall style. Not sure if that was intended or not. The town of Stratford-upon-Avon is a wonderful place to visit, complete with a Shakespearean theater next to one of Englands famous and much loved canals with surrounding lawns and trees in a very nice park like setting. A fond memory.
