We have a collection of enamelled watch faces, each one c.1900 to c.1920. I think they look fabulous as a lot, so we are selling them as an instant collection. They look great displayed in a glass jar or in a shadow box.
With the drawer I think it would make a unique desk, or perhaps a workbench in a kitchen? As you can see, we have our work cut out for us cleaning this beast up!
Is this not the cutest little ladder? It has a maker's label to the underside on the red section.
This pair of cast iron lamps are made from architectural elements. The bases are actually 19th century lamp posts!
And lastly, but definitely not least, is this English decoy pigeon which dates to the late 19th century. He has so much character, the worse for wear beak just adds to his charm. He is resting on the perch in a Victorian parrot cage, keeping an eye on the gardening room.
In all a busy week at the Drill Hall Emporium, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
