    Pre-Lot Text

    The Property of a J.A Pickles Esq (Lots 243 - 254)
    'In 1964 I moved from The Old Cottge at Burcot, Oxon to Sydney, Australia. At that time I had an emotional attachment, understood only by collectors, for the items. I have never believed that I owned any of the items, I respected the care put in by so many before me for all the items; my possession was a trust. I am now 70 years old and I feel it is time to pass that trust on to others. I hope the buyers will receive as much pleasure from the items as I and my family has over the 40 odd years they have ben with us.' J.A Pickles
