Tom Thumb is a character of English folklore. The History of Tom Thumb was published in 1621, and was the first fairy tale printed in English. Tom is no bigger than his father’s thumb, and his adventures include being swallowed by a cow, tangling with giants, and becoming a favourite of King Arthur. Apparently Tom Thumb was good at calculating too.
When I was at High School, I was awarded the Honour Certificate for being the best History student in Year 12. I love to think about the origin or source of things, and about history.
I bought a beautiful working Tom Thumb adding machine / slide adder in mint condition, together with stylus, case and instructions from the Vintage and Mod Shop on Etsy !!
My partner and I spent a lovely 3 nights away recently in Margaret River, at the beautiful Riverside Tourist Park in Willmott Avenue, a stone’s throw away from the Town centre! We left the suburbs of Perth around 11.00 am on Thursday 23rd April and arrived at our new temporary residence 3 hours later.
Our domicile was a small 2 person chalet, number 15, quite close to the Office. The park consists of a great number of different accommodation arrangements, to accommodate singles, couples and families, and includes lovely awesome cottages alongside the Margaret River.
I bought this BEAUUUTIFUL pewter Shire Horse from the eBay Seller – sea-eagle 1, a great Seller, with beautiful sculptures and figurines for sale – Collectables, Dolls & Toys. Have a look at their porcelain Ladies and their Sherratt & Simpson animals for sale.
It is quite heavy and in mint condition, a stunning old, long retired original Wildlife Sculpture, circa 1980s. The Horse ia approx. 3 3/4 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide x 3 1/2 inches high. The Horse was packaged very well indeed, with special “puffy” padding and in a box with extra packaging material. I was so excited when I got it and even kept the stamps on it.
This horse of course reminds me of Bill, the Shire pony in the “Lord of the Rings”. I havent’ named my horse yet, but think it will be a lady’s name, when I do.
Royal Hampshire Foundry is well known for its pewter military figures, but it also manufactured some wildlife sculptures. Alan Haig has the Kingfisher avaiable at the time of posting this. He had a Squirrel, which was also VERY cute, but that has Sold !!
