    As relayed in my New Members introductory post this evening I’m having to thin out a lot of my collectibles accumulated over twenty years prior to downsizing and sadly this means letting the few vintage fireworks and advertising related pieces go. If anything is of interest please drop me a line, in an ideal world moving it on as one lot would be ideal but I realise that is probably unrealistic. I’m not too clued up on current prices so I’ll see how the offers go if any come. Working away this week so please bear with me if there is a delay in replying to you.
    Many thanks
    Stuart.

Not sure of age but they came with some other 80s /90’s fireworks that were cleared from an old toy shop a few years ago.
    I had a few of the larger ones that were loose which I let off last year...good fun as the fuses are rapid!!

    Full pack of Standard 3-2-1-Zero bangers in original box. Certainly can remember these in my youth so I would guess 80’s or 90’s era.

    Print of Victorian H.W.Darby Fireworks advert. I would think the advert originally dates to mid 1800’s and this is a later copy. Fascinating insight to our early fireworks history.

I would think 90’s or early 2000’s. Box is a bit raggedly but contents fine. This came to me from the clearance of an old toy shop a few years back

As shown the tape has come away on the top of one tube but fuses and contents still fully intact, an easy fix.

    Thanks to all members who made enquiries and offers - quite taken back by the amount of interest!
    One member took all the Standard pieces and another the Brocks box which was ideal. The historic Darby print, framed Brocks poster and French firecrackers are still available if of interest to anyone.
    Thanks again for all the interest.
    All the best
    Stuart
