This is an unusual item a with A Knights head holding a shield with wings from the shield. On the back is an embossed Lions emblem. Price £75.00, please use the contact form for sale enquiries.
Sellers Comments - These are very good quality moulded stone / cast pillars. They are very well made and classically shaped and do not have any moulding marks that are found on cheapo products. Bath stone colour. I think they may be spun manufacture. Although these are all UNUSED these are quite old and have sat outside for a few years so they are very nicely patinated plus some lichen and moss in places. They are very heavy - about 30 kg each. I have 23 of these and I would prefer to sell in one lot. There are one or with two slight chips from storage / handling. I will not go below my starting price which is £15.00 EACH or £300 for the lot. Will require to be collected from Worcester.

TRIANG VINTAGE VETRAN CHILDS PEDAL CAR , needs some work to bring it back , this how I got it straight out of the shed . Please have a good look at the picture provided .would prefer cash on collection .
I take e care to describe the item as accurately as possible but am more than happy to answer any questions relating to it
I have decided to sell a couple of my pedal cars to make way for a possible new purchase.
This one is a nicely customised Traing pedal car in a rather vibrant orange colour with new wheels and a new padded seat to finish the job off. The paintwork is not showroom standard but certainly gets people talking and would look good in any collection.
The pedal car is currently in Penrhyn Bay near Llandudno but I can get in to Manchester by arrangement if that is easier for some people. I strongly recommend looking at this item before buying to avoid any misunderstandings .
This item is pick up only ! cash on collection please
Please feel free to ask any questions by ringing on 07595320218 , I do not answer withheld numbers or long winded texts.
I do have this item listed elsewhere and may be romoved if sold.
Thanks for looking
This is an vintage 1930's TRI-ANG MAGNA No 8 pedal car racer in very good and almost 100% original unrestored condition.
The car has been stored for years in a personal collection / private car museum, hence the almost perfect original condition.
As far as I can see, the only parts that looks replaced are the four tires and the license plates.
According to a 1930's advertisement I found, the tires should be dunlop cord balloon tires (as on the J40), only the spare tyre is still an original dunlop cord tyre.
The 4 others have been replaced by Vredestein tyres.
The license plates are vintage "DIY made" plates, that are on the car for years, and their patina matches the rest of this lovely pedal car.
The rest of the car is (IMO) 100% original.
Wooden body has some knocks and some playwear, paint looks original to me.
The black tonneau cover + seat upholstery has a lot of cracks (dried out) plus has a few tears BUT it's the original leather !
Mechanics are more then ok, everything (pedals, steering wheel, brake, windshield, horn) works fine.
Metal fenders have some knocks, but nothing that detracts the beauty of this car.
The small lights on the front fenders, seem to have contact-screws for electric wiring , but no wires are installed/included.
Hood ornament is damaged, normally should be an extra ring (loop) on top (looks restorable to me by someone with the right tools/knowledge)
Bonus is the original (optional) horn / bell and and little triangle sign on the rear fender with "4 wheel brakes".
SIZE: 145 cm long, 65 cm width, highest point (steering wheel) 55 cm. (47 inch x 25 inch x 21 inch)
Have a good look at the pictures, what you see is what you get.
The BIN in 1930 was 5£ 5c in 2015 there's no BIN, it will sell at highest bidder.
ABOUT PAYMENT AND SHIPPING / PICK UP.
I live in Belgium , nearby Leuven. I would prefer a local pick up , so that the car doesn't get damaged during transport.
The pick up can be arranged in Leuven (hometown) or in Ostend (holiday house).
If really needed , pedal car can be shipped l, but it that case I will have to make a crate and check out a few shipping companies for a price quote.
(i would estimate this in a price range of 200-300£, since it's heavy and bid.) Also in that case i'm not reliable for damage or loss.
This is a super rare and valuable pedal car, so I guess if you really want it to arrived sound and save, a local pick up is the most logical choice.
I am not in a hurry, so if you win you don't have to be here in hours/days for an immediate pick up.
In case you want me the store car for a few days/weeks, I'll be asking a small deposit to make sure that the your are committed to buy.
Payment can be made on pick up (Pounds or euros). Sorry no Paypal.
Any questions mail me.
Probably a once in a life time opportunity to get your hands on this super rare UNRESTORED pedal car.
Good luck with the bids.

Antique Godin French Art Nouveuu Cast Iron Enamel Stove Multi Fuel Stunning
For sale antique god in art nouveau enamel stove
This is a stunning stove in a mottled blue grey colour with lovely nouveau cast decoration . It is in good condition with what I can see as only a bolt missing on the top, it is 29" high and 13" deep and wide, the enamel is all around the stove so allowing it to be away from a wall.
Basic design and features of the Godin stove brand include cast iron molded fronts with the addition of enamel on some models. A highly ornate and decorative aesthetic in the early art nouveau style is common. The mica window is a later edition. As manufacturing practices improved, thus improving the quality of the design aesthetic quality of raw material and general fuel consumption practices, so did the look and variety of Godin cast iron stoves.
The stove is very heavy and needs to be collected from London SE 18

A CAST IRON WINDOW FRAME SUITABLE FOR SO MANY USES, GARDEN FOLLY , MIRROR NEW HOUSE BUILD . THERE ARE TWO AVAILABLE IF REQUIRED. IT IS IN GREAT CONDITION NO DINTS CHIPS OR CRACKS . IT MEASURES 110 CM TALL X 99 CM WIDE AND THE OVAL IN THE MIDDLE IS 63X43. VERY HEAVY
This is a very ornate original Victorian ceiling rose which dates from 1869.
Due to the high quality of the piece, it is believed to be manufactured by the world renowned Coalbrookdale foundry. Many items manufactured by the foundry do not carry its mark, however the exceptional high quality of the cast strongly points towards Coalbrookdale as the casting foundry.
The rose has 12 fixing holes that have been cast on the periphery of the item, as well as two larger anchoring holes at the centre.
The diameter of the rose is 101 cm.
It has a classical acanthus leaf and foliage design that provides a very elegant feel to the piece. The superior casting is very pronounced and reaches into the room and does not lie flat like other contemporary examples.
When placed into a room the eye is naturally drawn to the piece and is an essential for any superior period home.
Stone fireplace and gas fire for sale. I am told it's limestone. Made by The Dragon Fireplace Company of selby and doncaster. Looks lovely but won't suit our log burner so it has to go. There is a small chip on top of the mantel where I slipped with the hammer when I was removing it. I would imagine it is fillable and you won't notice it. It's shown in one of the photos. Gas fire has some light damage to the fire back. It just needs painting with some black fire paint. Dimensions are:
Mantel width: 54"
Total height : 41"

Wonderful rare Victorian antique wood burning stove by C Portway of Halstead in Essex.
This is the no.2 size and comes with the usually lost tray.
Portways are still made today but this one I believe dates late 1800's to early 1900's.
These tortoise models were named as such because of their slow efficient burning of fuel. It is in very good condition and ready to be used if wanted for that purpose.
Solid Fuel Cast Iron Stove (Antique)
The make is La Salamander
The stove has a grab handle and on rollers, it is intended to move from room to room plugging into a built in flue in each room. The stove is highly decorative as seen in the photos. Perhaps to use for decoration purposes.
Small crack (see photo) would need repairing before attempting to light up.
Measurements are as follows:-
Height 68cm (27 inches)
Depth 40cm (16 inches)
Width 54cm (21 inches)
