J. Caussť Mirror - Candlestick Centrepiece91 viewsWe purchased this in Buenos Aires, Argentina about ten years ago for the New York apartment. As we've sold the NYC apartment, this young lady doesn't really fit into Whitecroft -- so we've put her on eBay. Marjorie and I had fun taking this photograph: how do you get the mirror to look reflective, but not reflect the camera, ceiling, lights, etc.

WMF Gondolier Bowl2116 viewsWe purchased this large centrepiece bowl --- made from silver-plated "Britannia Metal" (pewter) in the late 1800's --- in Buenos Aires in 1995. As there's no room for it at Whitecroft, we've put it up for sale on eBay.

WMF Gondolier Centrepiece168 viewsI am told it's quite unusual to have the original glass bowl with this piece. The bowl is quite delicate, and a strange shape --- and it has lasted (with just a few chips on the edges) for over 100 years. And at least two trips across the Atlantic. We purchased this piece in Buenos Aires.

Philco Model 20 Radio59 viewsWe purchased this in New York City, but then moved it back to England. As it's made to work on U.S. electricity, not much joy of picking up the BBC on this 1930's radio. But we had fun taking this photograph.

Philco Model 20 Radio56 viewsCan't you just see the family gathering around this radio in the 1930's to listen to The Green Hornet?

Philco Model 20 Radio84 viewsI barely remember what a vacuum tube looks like. Certainly more interesting than printed circuit boards.

My Leica R8 35mm Single Lens Reflex Camera202 viewsI've been waiting for the Leica Digital Modul R to come out so that I could convert my Leica R8 to a digital camera. But the wait seems endless, and the recent review in Amateur Photographer wasn't stellar. So off to eBay. I can still use my Leica lenses on my Canon EOS 1D Mark II digital camera.

The Whitecroft Swan Fountain61 viewsThe water in the fountain managed to coat the reeds with a layer of ice. Not exactly a Jacuzzi.
