Bought last week on the road a Nottingham reel from the Dreadnought Class. Converted from a standard starback into a brass caged centre pin with the addition of a large porcelain lineguard. Most likely dating to the turn of the last century. A unique and rather beautiful piece of working folk-art listed for immediate sale to Victoria's and Albert's in the wing of my website known as 'Just in, Sir!'.
