Here's me, posting on a copiced - tinkers set of pegs while Australia's biggest antique and art auction is going ballistic in Sydney!

the Warren Anderson/Bonhams sell-off . . .

These are Tasmanian and made using willow trees in the Blackman river at Tunbridge, they were found in a rat's nest under the floorboards at the shop and residence we own called Rothwell. Scrubbed and scanned - they are made by Mother Brown - this set of two we bought from Warwick Oakman (before we found our own) - Bug Eye, Joe Brown's wife and a travelling tinker famous throughout the Midlands - 1940s+
One more set from the UK in our collection is here.
