    Thats really nice. From a car boot aswell? Such a shame its not named. Out of was it being sold by the family or was it on a dealer's stall? If from the family did you get any other info about it. Cheers.

    It was in the bottom of a box of old house hold junk
    , I asked the seller if he had anything else, but he said no, he found it in the loft of his house when he moved in about twenty years ago
