Dear Lance, Rob, & Other Kinsmen,
In 1970, I purchased in Inverness from "Peter Fraser, Silversmith"
a clan crest that was marvelously made in silver that I treasured for many
years until it was unfortunately lost and never found. I have tried to find
a listing for his shop or its successor. (I hope that it has not gone out
of business; I would dearly love to find a match for his craftsmanship.)
I'll attach a photo of it for your interest (because attachments will mot
go through, on this list, it can be found at http://ENW.org/PersonalPage.htm )
If any could help locate this artisan or his successor, or if we
could as a group find someone to replicate it, I'd be happy to guarantee an
order. Unfortunately, not only is Turnbull merchandise hard to find from
the volume sellers at Games & Gatherings, it's even harder to find really
good work. I'm certainly interested, as others must be, in finding other
makers of Turnbull objects.
