More curious things in the basement: a large jar of saffron, used for gilding as it was done in the Middle Ages, and rocks of rosin, obtained from conifers and used for glass polishing among other applications… Dennis was certainly a renaissance man.
Here are some photos of items newly arranged.

Those auction catalogues! Ah! Wish I could flip through those..
I have plenty you can flip through when I get back!
Really nice lot, I have enjoyed all your picks. Keep it up! Astol
If the Rolls Royce item is a printing plate, it should be mirror image.
I think it’s a transfer plate. So you’re right – printing plate isn’t really the correct title.. It seems it would be done with an ink that is transferred from the plate to a silicone like applicator and then the applicator would be pressed onto a metal or other surface… thoughts?
Are you sure that isn’t the “Tardis” you have been rummaging around in?
HA! it certainly feels like it most of the time 😀
