Unique Bernard Pearson Item

Postby unohoo » Wed Jun 22, 2005 12:20 pm

Regretably, as I don't really have room for it, I will be selling my unique "Street Of Cunning Artificers" sign.

You may remember that these used to be available in stone finish from Bernard for about £30, indeed there is one on the wall of the shop, but they are no longer produced.

Well, a few years back, I believe at Bernards 2nd Do, I was "in the right place, at the right time" and had the opportunity to purchase a unique bronze finish version of the sign. It was produced because, according to Bernard, "we wanted to see how it looked".

Well, obviously, I bought it immediately.

Now, due to spacial and financial constraints, it needs selling. I will put a photo on here later, and it will be listed on ebay at the weekend, unless I receive a sensible offer in the meantime.

That was the stone finish, this is a unique item I would suggest worth considerably more :D

It's just under 6inches top to bottom, just over 29 side to side, and weighs over 2 kg.

Try very hard not to post it to the new owner. The first one Isobel tried to send us was a fifty piece jigsaw when it arrived - we ended up collecting one at Clarecraft!

I assume it's made from plaster then?

Which is why they stopped making them. I don't have one, which is a shame because the way to my top floor den is now an homage to the work of the man himself - it really is the "Street of the Cunning Artificer"!
