A very compact and well made picnic 'hamper'. A burner and sealed kettle is provided to make fresh tea, with a container for 'spirits'. A wicker protected bottle for milk. A sugar container and another circular pot for tea leaves. An original cup and saucer with a green label "Made for Selfridges" on the base. Cup has a slight stin and chip... but is remarkable they have survived. I will endeavour to find a matched set of a similar period. A great deal of thought and design has gone into this. And could provide endless refreshment for holidays, weekend trips, open theatre and hobbies. I have a variety of period hampers and picnic cases, however this is the most dinky and well designed set, quite possibly to fit vintage/ veteran car of the period. It comes with two amber phenolic handled knives and a little art deco spoon.

I am an artist, sculptor, collector and restorer.  I have always been inspired and influenced by my love of the old. Since collecting tins, postcards, early textiles and gadgets as a teenager I have surrounded myself with “stuff”. I started trading in the 1970s from my architectural effects shop Leaded Lights and design shop Gothic in Greenwich. My stock reflects my enjoyment of the antique and the peculiar, from early Medieval to Victorian to Art Deco and industrial design.

I endeavour to hunt out the unusual - richly patinated wood, faded sun-drenched   paintwork and gently burnished ironwork.

We are based in a Victorian Gothic building in Somerset, only 15 minutes from the M5.
