Charmed Object

Bought late on Saturday night from a gentleman in the parlour of a public house in the back streets of Kings Cross a Farlow's Platewind Trout Reel of the most excellent provenance with engraved face, straight foot, ivory handle and patina oh, so glorious.  The trade continued after closing time when we retired to the adjacent street and proceeded to hold a Private Early Start Late Night Car Boot Sale Preview with a battered suitcase being plucked from the back of the gentleman's Mercedes Saloon and its contents examined by streetlight.
