My shop poster for back of a cabinet.
heres my one ....just the brocks added
What very neat handwriting you have
it was written with my finest gold pen
I know, I can see that.......
1953 I believe, so fairly early.
Simply fantastic @Pyromania - looks immaculate....
I particularly love the look of the artwork (and name) of the 3d Wizard fountain. is there any chance you could take a picture of this one out of the box please?
Thanks @BarnOwl, yes it is in pretty good condition for its age! I’ll do my best to get a photo of the Wizard fountain, however my collection currently resides at my Mums house due to not having the space to display it at my place at the moment - but I’ll ask her to get a photo when she’s got a spare minute, send it to me and I’ll post it up for you.
The artwork of all the differing companies is always....well different.....and each brings to mind so many childhood memories for all,of us who love the blue touchpaper days.
And in there lies of what drives us in our fascination to be involved with the collecting studying and eulogising of Bonfire Night memories.
Each being different gives each firm a different “feel”.
Take Brocks...for me the cometic serpentine pattern is probably the very best of ALL the wrap patterns...followed by the Village scene from the box tops ..each rendering a different atmosphere to the subject.
Each generation of enthusiasts will have varied associations with their childhood times...not better...not worse...just different and with that on goes the progress of us enthusiasts
Long may it continue to evolve and be special to is all.
