Guaranteed original and, as with so many, converted to pin-back as a sweetheart brooch when the 2nd pattern was introduced. Clear evidence of the original lugs - correctly located - and a sharp strike back and front. The pin keeper has broken away but everything about this badge is original. Much sought after by NF collectors as the pattern has been so heavily copied.

I'm Hector. I'm just coming up to three and a half years old and, although I say it myself, I'm a bit of a looker with a pedigree to prove it. However, my main role is to keep The Boss on his toes. He may know a bit about the antiques trade but it's really Tracey and yours truly who run the show - we just let him believe that he does. So, if you're passing Haugh Head, drop in and say hello and if you happen to have a few (non-chocolate) biscuits in your pocket, all the better.
Copper base with turned wooden handle, this implement used for hand washing (possing) clothes in soapy water by pounding up and down as an alternative to a washboard. In very good condition, the copper base stamped with the model 'Simplex No. 6' being the smallest of its type, the copper base and wooden handle becoming larger as the model number reduced.
