And this is what I was working on today. I've shown one before as a mystery object, it is a chamber candlestick complete with dowser and snuffers. It is an unusually early type, English, and dating from circa 1750 to 1780. Had to do quite a lot of restoration on it - it was falling apart.
Ann has just informed me that I have four minutes to get upstairs, cleaned up, and ready for supper;
So, Goodnight All.
P.s. Must reopen this to report that supper was well worth the gallop.
P.p.s. Consisting, as it did, of a hearty beef casserole, followed by apple and figgy fool.
