Returning after a long absence, I am going to experiment with posting items that will hopefully reawaken my interest in this blog and will encourage me to pay for another years subscription which I can ill afford. Since I last posted anything I have been rummaging through my collection and finding items to list, this one is currently up for auction on Catawiki, I hope you like it.
