If you’ve taken a look at www.antiques.co.uk of late you will have noticed a certain nautical theme with scrimshaws and other items taking pride of place on the home page. Add to that a short video on an antiques quest cruise with Tom Wonnacott.
This may have got you interested in all things naval, and if you’re already interested in anything maritime, then perhaps this month is an ideal opportunity get stuck into naval history. You can look in your attic or spare room, or look in antiques stores and online at www.antiques.co.uk (of course!).
