14 thousand pieces of stock!

Moorabool Antiques has passed 14,000 items on our stock database today! Item 14000 was a sweet little South Staffordshire enamel patch box modeled as a lions head.

It has it's original mirror inside, so you could see to put your beauty spot on - as was the fashion 230 years ago when this was made.

On the cover it has a view of an English sea side town. This should be identifiable - it has a castle, docks, and some interesting square buildings.

While it is the fourteen thousandth item to be catalogued, it has taken 10 years! Of those items, most have sold. In our Geelong shop, though, we still have over 7,000 items on show for sale, most of it is simply not catalogued - yet. So much to do!
