I liked the photos of the wall clocks. And you don't know how long I stared at the pictures, expecting the minute hand to move.

Picked up a couple jappaned/copper flash 'piggy banks'; had someone make an offer on them in less than 24 hours, but I took photos for posterity:

My kids primary school has something similar to those, but in plastic unfortunately.

While i'm at it... more nostalgia

Here's my 1970's era 'embossed'  Lyons Maid tin sign which ive framed and screwed to the garden fence.
The later versions wern't embossed, minor design changes through the decades ect...

A design classic of modern childrens advertising.


Until recently i also owned the late 70's - early 80's 'Walls' ice cream tin sign with the two children, girl wearing Clarks sandals, boy in patched jeans and blue pumps.
I gave it away to the 'Man n' Van' who helped us move as part payment...
I never bothered framing it... Walls ice cream was awful! almost as bad as Mr.Whippy

Back around 2000 a friend of mine was fitting out his narrowboat, he bought some 30's/40's era flip down seats from a GP's surgery which was having a re-fit.
Lovely things, beautiful brassware, mahogony furniture and red leather seating, although it had seen much better days...
I stripped the old woodwork away and had the brassware re-polished, i re-furnished them with 1.5" waney edge oak seating, they looked perfect in his narrowboat, flipping up out of the way when not in use.

The deal was, i did the restoration work in exchange for all the remaining seating.

I never made use of them at the old address because the old barn was Grade II listed, the external courtyard walls were also listed being attatched to the barn (the heritage nerds don't take too kindly) Ive saved these bloody things for nearly 20years and i still don't really have a suitable external wall to support seating.

You'll have to use your imagination with this one...
The 2x brass castings in the middle are what attach to the wall/vertical surface, the 2x brass castings on the outside are what support the seat.



If you imagine the 2x pieces of mahogony screwed to the wall and a piece of timber screwed through the 6x holes to make a seat.


In the horizontal/seating position it would look like this.. obviously with a seat on top

To neatly flip the seat up into the vertical possition you just pull it towards yourself which moves the peg down the slide and they lock perfectly upright.
Lovely simple mechanism.


Ive even kept the original brass fixtures and fittings

Don't forget apply for planning permission under the guise of 'affordable family housing' without any intention of building such

Same as construction now - start out with good intent (no, not really) and then make every effort to ignore the contract and maximise profit
