It would be nice to think we can still make items of this quality in the UK Tom
Tom Wilson: Oh, I think some of the places here in Sheffield can still do this kind of stuff.

I’d like a pair of those scissors.
Tom Wilson: Make them an offer smile
Ange and I went to a cutlery museum in Sheffield but it wasn't this one I don't think
Tom Wilson: Probably the Millenium Gallery in the city centre.
certainly more embellished than your ordinary knife or pair of scissors, Tom.
Tom Wilson: The scissors were probably used once to cut a tape to open some building or public facility smile
Some interesting items Tom, the cup is very impressive.
Tom Wilson: Made by Garrard's of London - which is still going strong.
I love the chalice. It is made with the term, 'marriage of metals.' I designed my wedding ring using that technique.
Tom Wilson: Yes, a very fine piece - made by Garrard's of London - a firm that still exists - https://www.garrard.com/the-house/the-story-of-garrard/
