Travel Coathanger






Not sure about this...it is a bit new...and not a great design...but I own quite a few travel coathangers and feel and exhibition is due of them...
Bought for one pound from Middlewich table top sale.

Needle Case (PLG)



PLG sent me this interesting bullet shaped needle case...a bullet feels like an odd choice for a needle case design...(the end pulls off.)

Thing?? now known as a Mohr Pinchcock Clamp.


Another object off the stall at Moss Farm which came with a story, another story I am really not sure about. The man said it was a medical item and was used as a tourniquet for a bleeding finger...is it though?  Not knowing what else it might be I will have to go with that until advised otherwise.
Patent Number 645514

Michael just told me that someone on Flickr said it is called a MOHR PINCHCOCK CLAMP, and is used on tubes to regulate the flow of liquids or gas..so it is medical.....but not as gory..

What is it really? Judges Wig Powder Pot.


I always like a good story with an object, and I bought a few things off the same stall at Moss Farm, just because the man said this wasn't a pepper pot..."yes indeed that is what it looks like, but it is actually a pot to hold powder to dust the wig of a judge" he said...he swore that is what it is...not sure myself.
