The dioramas that line the wall are called "Baranger Motions" and were used as attention-getting devices in the windows of jewelry stores to sell watches and diamonds. They are very rare today. Though there are some fake and replica things at the House on the Rock, I'm pretty sure these are not among them. I think they are the real deal.

Does anyone know anything about the little dioramas that line the walls in this room? They look like advertising displays, and alot have the theme of dimonds. This is driving me crazy. I wish they would label some of the stuff.
