Bought from the antique man on Northwich market, he said it dates back to the Civil war,1640. He found it himself with a metal detector at Acton near Nantwich. After I had handed over the one new pound it cost he said "you never know, that might have killed someone!" which is a rather nasty thought.

I have been really ill will a sore throat and cough, which caused me to search the medicine cabinet one night in desparation to find some cough mixture and a spoon..I found these four spoons, dating back to when Archie was a baby and had Calpol. Four variations on the same spoon. (I realise they break the metal object rule, but sometimes plastic objects can qualify..)

Found on a boot sale at Witton Albion football club, for 50 pence. The man who sold it to me said he didn't think anyone would buy it and almost threw it in the bin. It really does prove the old saying "ones mans rubbish is another womans treasure".
ICI used to own the factory in Northwich, so not only is this an interesting metal object, it is a piece of Northwich history.
