Watch faces.

Found on the last Vagrants Boot sale of the year, the man who sold me these mends clocks, but his dad mended watches. the enamel backs are such beautiful colours.

Mouse trap from PLG

A wonderful parcel arrive today from PLG with this amazing mousetrap.

Michael did some research and found out..
it is a German Luchs Mouse Trap from the 20s or 30s.
The mechanism is quite ingenious, the mouse enters into the baited chamber, the door shuts which causes the mouse to the climb the tube, at the top it falls into the the metal holding can, as the mouse falls it pushes down another flap which re-sets the trap..and so it goes on....
