ITS THE LITTLE DETAILS THAT MATTER...

When I am looking for fresh stock for the shop and our website, there are many factors that come into consideration.  I primarily look for originality, pieces that have not been over restored. Imagine my delight on buying these 18th century pricket sticks; I was originally drawn to the the original gilt, darkened from centuries of candle and fire smoke. Not only that but, despite being converted to electric light many decades ago, still have the original candle wax dripping down from the top! Thankfully each subsequent owner has retained this and I hope that it never gets removed...
