Ark Royal Commemorative coin small

On our other web site we have an increasing range of unique gifts. These are not mass produced items and are made in small quantities not just for the discerning collector but also for those who want something which can be treasured  over the years. The item above is a 5 coin from the History of the Royal Navy set in oak salvaged from HMS Victory Nelson’s flagship at the battle of Trafalgar.  All of these unique pieces are gift boxed and the coins are rebated into the wood. We only have a very limited quantity of oak from HMS Victory  and many of the commemorative coins are rare so if you see something that interests you strike while the iron is hot. The SS Great Britain paperweights & the HMS Victory paperweights are quite unique and only available in small quantities.

STRaight razor 200

historic keyrings jpg 200

Have a look at our range of Sheffield made historic keyrings, unique keyrings made from a range of materials salvaged from iconic material from British history. The first item is made from the armour plating salvaged from a Battle of Britain Spitfire. We only have nineteen of these and they are provided in a limited numbered edition. You can own an lasting memento of epic events in the nations history and each keyring is unique because of the pitting and rusting of each item. It’s unlikely that we will ever obtain a piece of armoured plating with the history of this item and it’s battered distortions make allow this keyring tell it’s own tale
