Fantastic job there Neil and it will get a great day out at "the Match"; tight lines there ! I think that the original "sale ticket" from that particular second hand shop that...."oh.... I just happened to be passing"....should definitely be in a separate frame on the study wall as a reminder that Fortune Favours The Brave. I do like the final piece to the restoration; very stylish and unusual stoppers and I can't imagine just who has the complete set of "Chess Pieces" for ferrule stoppers...on no.....Ha Ha ! Catch up soon Neil.
