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.
