If you can't beat them...

Ashness Bridge.

A bit of an emergency blip today.   I was busy and it wasn't until about 7:30 I remembered blip.  So I roamed round the house looking something I hadn't blipped before.

This is an original David Simpson.   David is a friend of ours and for a while in the 80s/90s he made his living by these.  We call them "not plaques" as David was adamant they weren't plaques.  He would sculpt the scene in a form of modelling wax, cast it and then paint and mount it.  To give a scale the centre circle is 55 mm in diameter.  If you look carefully you will see djs and 87 as his mark and year of production.
