It must be a mad mad world where you can potentially make a living by reproducing a polo stick which will never be used for anything! Nevertheless we have made hundreds. Where they are now we just don't know!( Ok...we sold an awful lot to the likes of Ralph Lauren for his shop windows).

 

 

Available as a single stick price: RGT 18 £27 Crossed with small heraldic shield: RGT19 £65

 



Rowing Oars, these are available in two sizes - either 12' in length, or 9' in lengt
h. Some people purchase these from us to use as curtain poles, or simply to decorate a swimming pool area or hotel lobby.

Available straight from the water, painted, semi-sign written or fully sign written as a university trophy oar celebrating a rowing teams win with the crew's name, college shield etc.

In 1992 we were commissioned by the ARA (Amateur Rowing Association) to illuminate the gold winning Olympic oars.
Prices: Too many to mention please enquire

 

 

 

Heraldic Shields

We have formed a collection of twelve decorative shields, ten English colleges and universities, the other two being fictitious shields depicting a Royal deer and a Royal swan.

The shields are available in two sizes, small (23cm high) and large (30.5cm high).

The printed image taken from our original art work is aged with several coats of varnish and the bevelled sides are then guilded with a gold leaf formula. A brass ring eyelet is inserted at the top of the shields to allow hanging. These delightful shields lend a certain gravitas and learning.

Prices: Small RGT 1 £12 each, Large RGT 2 £18 each
