G. R. Pratley & Sons in Worcester

Whilst on holiday we made a trip to Worcester, where I found this awesome shop on the High Street.

It is an absolute treasure trove of china, furniture and oddities. Its also a really beautiful building and Matt and I decided that with that amount of natural light it would make an awesome studio!

This display caught my attention…

…and I couldn’t leave without buying this beautiful and very big spool. When I bought it the gentleman informed me that it came from the Yorkshire mills when they closed. I love it even more now that I know it has a real place in history.
