In my opinion it was made an hour ago. you 
could buy the raw materials and get any half
competent joiner to ' knock one up ' if you look
carefully at the wood, copper, there is no sign 
whatever of age, it clearly states its a repro, and
that is fair enough, the label looks straight off the
printer..and the guy could not even be bothered
to line up the screws..it would be excellent for
keeping socks and smalls in..but look at the price!
again he's having a laugh..there's to much of this
sort floating about..but this is my opinion, and its
just one. i'm sure someone will look at this with a
less jaundiced and cynical view. and enjoy it just
for what it represents. but the price! wow.

Hi Les
I'm aware it's a replica but the price is a guide to what some people are prepared to pay for something which is a likeness of the original ! . If there are any budding woodworking people out there , this could be a nice earner , if you are prepared to buy , and use , the actual timber used etc , along with the technical specifications . I'll bet Neil could make a doozy !! Shocked Very Happy Salute
Cheers 90th Shocked

Hiya Gary, i agree with all that! the price just took my
breath away.  Shocked maybe because i'm on a restricted
income. yeah Neil would do one in his sleep.. i think
my way to go would be to go to an antique salvage
yard, source a bit of old teak..same with the copper
with evidence of verdigris and a few victorian screws.
i said for socks and smalls but it could hold anything
practical..                                         cheers Les

I've got five thumbs when it comes to Carpentry. Not a bad replica at all, could do with the inside painting with a metallic silver to replicate the lining, and have a tin framing, but otherwise very good indeed, including the correct stampings which is particularly good IMO. The maker hasn't fallen into the trap of putting "rolled case" on the label, which would not have existed until 1885. 9.9 out of ten, but the small mortgage needed put me off.

Interesting comments Neil, i wonder if you
would like to rate the one shown, which by
the way i would have in a flash.. you gave 
the advertised above, a 9 out of ten, even 
with the omissions. the small mortgage was
very prophetic..
It went for 355.00 US
               217.55 GBP
               397.77 AD
              3826.55 R.....

No mate you just rightly flagged it up!
the world is upside down to me, today
on e bay there was the pull out from 
the Graphic showing the Zulu King on
his way to meet Wolseley escorted by
the 60th and The KDG's, so to me it
did'nt look quite right so i bid anyway, it
was at a fiver, i e mailed the seller asking
if it was the genuine article, he said it
was..i was not convinced so i left it.. it
went for £12.50! its official i know nothing
about anything anymore..cheers xhosa

But referring to the video i posted the other
night which brought the wrath of admin apon
me..the thread was in danger of becoming a
little tense so i posted gangster shark with 
the intention of lightning the mood, which of
course has a serious message highlighting 
the ecology, a message that can not be re-
peated enough in my opinion..i was then going
to start a new thread as the gangster shark had
mild and amusing references to drug use! i was
going to use that to refer to the drug use during
the AZW, we have well documented accounts of
Zulu drug usage be it ganja or hallucinogenics...
i wonder if anybody knew of the ' other side ' 
using drugs..not solely as pain relief but maybe
recreational as well..the Colonials would of been
aware of Cannabis. and i further wonder what 
drugs would be available in the nineteenth century.
by the way i write this as a man drug and alcohol
free..but i have certainly ' dabbled ' with both in
my younger days..

As a footnote, it is well recorded that the troops in
WW1 had Dexedrine Amphetamine ( speed ) issued
on a regular basis to ward off sleep during night
attacks and covert sorties,
