bringing you objects, skills, and inspiration from the past, to enrich the future
We are sorry to have to announce that Gareth died on Friday 26 March 2021 after being diagnosed with cancer in the autumn of 2020. Sally had surgery for breast cancer on 30 March and is currently working a bit more slowly than usual. Orders are starting to become a bit more normal as of the end of June now radiotherapy is over, but please do bear with her as she continues to heal. Thank you for your patience and support!
Sally has a specialist research interest in the history of cosmetics and is the author of 'The Artifice of Beauty, a history and practical guide to perfumes and cosmetics' (Sutton Publishing, 2005). A few of the reconstructed recipes she works on have been fully safety certified to modern standards to allow us to offer them to you, these and the associated implements make a great addition to displays and living history or theatrical use.
