More from under the Floorboards

We cannot wait until we have time to properly photograph and examine all the items that came from under Dr Backhouse's home - each one is fascinating in its own right. Here are a few more of the items:


A small piece of early china, with a perfect butterfly.


A tiny head from either a doll or an ornament


A plastic broach - which we have tested, and it is not luminous - although we remember ones like this from the 1950s.

And finally, we could not resist this one:


Yes - a better photograph of the fish head. Apart from the fact we think it looks a little like a mask from a Greek tragedy, and that we could now write a PhD thesis on how to photograph an item such as this with a cheap digital camera - we still need to know what sort of fish it is.

Can anyone help?
