For all you folks that keep saying “I never find anything…”, just check this out…
Gavin Maddock just emailed “Now why would I be interested in an old oil lamp?” with a link to an auction house listing with this picture:
As if you didn’t see it already, if you look a bit closer and there’s a Thomason Variant fruitwood handle included in this lot of oil lamp & brass stuff! Gav won the lot for a mere £95.00!! Unbelievable!
Hats off to Gavin! Good job mate!
Gav instructed the auction house to re-auction the oil lamp and other stuff in their next sale (he hopes to get a credit on today’s lot – probably not happening though). If you’re interested in a Thomason Variant, contact Gavin via http://www.eracorkscrews.com
