There were many appealing individual elements that miniature
collectors would have loved to buy on their own – including an early 19th century Pontypool tôle decorated five-
division toast rack, a set of three period brass fire irons, a William IV chaise longue in laburnum with turquoise beadwork upholstery and a sarcophagus form tea caddy.
