Daily favourites


Our selected daily favourite lot this week is by Vintassion Seller Strumpets Bazaar - fabulous Neeta crumb sweeper in its original box, £6. Keep your dining table clean between courses & meals this Festive period... A label across the lid reads: "Chromium Plated Neeta Crumb Sweeper Eon British". The sweeper itself has a handle that unscrews so that it can be boxed. A green bead acts as a washer where the handle attaches to the body. The top lifts up to reveal a circular brush with a rubber roller at each end. The brush can be moved across a table cloth to pick up crumbs. The words "Neeta British Made" are engraved along the front of the top flap.
