My guess is that this placefinder has the largest numbers of any placefinder ever made; the pegs are 110mms long and 18mms wide, the numbers are 15mms high so the only things missing are the numbers repeated in braille.
The pot is made from ivory casein ( its natural colour ) and I designed it as a dining or hall table piece. Its shape resembles a church candle with a flared base, 100mms in diameter and its height, including the detachable top the piece is 140mms – wow! It is highly polished and looks very much like ivory, there is an intricate barley corn design on its top.
I have made two versions of this pot; the BUCCLEUGH HIGH GROUND has on the outside of the pot a flying grouse, a snipe and a blackcock, all in silver with ruby eyes. The 10 pegs all have a single snipe at the top of each peg with the large number at the bottom in black.
The BUCCLEUGH LOW GROUND has around its body a flying pheasant, a grey partridge and a woodcock again in silver with ruby eyes , this time each peg has a small silver partridge on the top of the peg with the large black number at the bottom.
Made in Sussex.
