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 is having surgery for breast cancer on 30 March. Please bear with her if it takes a while to reply to enquiries at the moment. Thank you.
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.
