Charity Shop Find: Arthur Wood Money Box

Easter holidays are upon us which means I have time to relax and indulge in some of my favourite past times: wandering around Glossop, searching through charity shops, reading, playing on the computer and blogging.  After a lovely lunch with my friends, Rachel and Deiniol, I had a little look around the charity shops.  I picked up a couple of books (including one on owls!) and this:

Arthur Wood Squirrel Money Box

It needs a good old clean, but I quite like it. Aidan even likes it, which I am surprised about.

I’ve had a quick look on the internet about Arthur Wood, but there’s seems to be very little to find.  The company is located in Longport, Stoke-On-Trent and has been trading since 1904. It’s been through a number of name changes over the years:  more information can be found here.

    Hi I also bought 2 matching dog money boxes both turned out to be Arthur woods work and in one stuck in an ear was an old Irish pound note. Lucky day for me.
