The item for sale is a bookbinding finishing tool that depicts a small crown or coronet - the head is approx 9/16" (14mm) across - no play in the handle but is about 22 shorter than normal - there is writing on the handle that looks like HRH Prince of W........???.

Will be posted using a tough cardboard tube.

This is part of an antique collection of bookbinding tools that i will be selling over the coming weeks and will combine postage where possible and will be done on combined weight as it works out a lot cheaper than giving a % discount - on the smaller items typically the 2nd item purchased of a similiar size works out 50% or less .

Please be aware that they have wear,oxidisation,burnt handles etc commensurate with age and use with several over 100 years old with a lot of the tools coming from the long gone old Chivers bindery - some of the tools i have cleaned up as they were so black you could not make out the makers names and patterns - so please study the photo(s) to satisfy yourself to the condition as they are being sold a seen.

AUSTRALIAN and AMERICAN buyers Due to the delays caused by the your customs departments checking every item thoroughly as it comes into your country your items are taking a lot longer to arrive - apologies for this but the circumstances are beyond my control.
