Two forum members know who this is, but what do others think? Small, hand-carved, hardwood bust that has plenty of age and is extremely tactile.

I am a great believer in first impressions and gut reactions when it comes to this kind of thing. So, well done Sime your spot on!

Woohoo, I've got something right on this forum for once.....

Have you got any idea of the provenance or history of the bust, Steve?

It comes from an impeccable source, but neither of us know its earlier history. I have never seen another, and nor has its previous owner. But it is one of those things that you know just feels right and if only it could talk! Is there a Bromhead lurking somewhere?

I once had a vintage  bottle of Heinz tomato Ketchup. That came from an impeccable source.

Not widely known. The recently found US coat button belonged to Otto Heinz who stole the recipe from Lea and Perrin who dropped it while attempting to save the regimental condiments. He was badly shaken.

Leading to the financial collapse of the company as the regimental condiments were on HP.
(The button fell off as  he was dressing at the time.)
Off to bed now, I'll ketchup with this thread tomorrow.
