A New Post!

Its only taken nearly a year for me to make a post but like the items in it good things come those who wait. Below are three example of a most curious Victorian souvenir. They are calcified baskets of fruit and flowers. Created by placing real fruit in a metal basket and then putting it under a flow of water that has first passed through tufa rock. Believed to have been created in the Royal Victorian wells of Matlock Bath in Derbyshire.

The time you have been away and then come up with a new post has been well worth it! The new post is quite fantastic.
It just makes me sit here in wonderment.
Where did you find these goodies if I might ask?
