Noah's Ark

Postby Miss Costello » Sat Jan 25, 2014 2:13 pm

I'm trying to find a traditional Noah's Ark toy for my son for events from 1850 onwards. I want the very plain type, bare wood. (I know you can buy modern ones on Ebay but they're not what I want) I'm sure I've seen someone who makes traditional wooden toys at a multiperiod event.

Any ideas?

Kate

Paul Bennet used to before giving up trading.

Lucy the Tudor'd be my first port of call.

Bless you Phil.
I can make you one up, happily, did you want pine for economy or hard woods, and can you give me an idea of what size you wanted it to be, then I can quote you a price. ( ark and a goodly number of animals- if you want everything but the unicorn, it may be a little pricey).

Lucy, thank you!

Just a few animals and in whatever is hardwearing as he's um....heavy handed!! :D Not massive, it needs to be portable.

Probably about 1ft long?

Jolly good, about a foot complete, with animals, ark in ash ( as kid proof as wood gets) , animals in other hardwoods, waxed wood and some detail pyrography ( eyes etc). Would be £35 plus delivery, or where will we see you next, if you'd like to save postage?

We were hoping to be at Bernie's Godmanchester do but I'm down with a stinking cold. Can I send you a deposit via paypal or something?

Sounds fantastic.

We are at Godmanchester, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to allocate enough time by then. I'll see what I can do and let you know. No deposit needed, if you don't like it when it's done, someone else will. x

The animals are coming happily in two by two for this, well most of them are ( just a few sets, not the whole of creation, I'll leave that to the ultimate deity), but the sheep are struggling. One, yep, fine, but five others in and I keep lopping the legs off the second sheep. One sheep may well be lying down.
Elephant trunks are much easier, who'd have known?
See you at TORM...

Wow! That's an odd thing to do.Even as a Christian, I find it odd to consider the ark as historical fact, ripe for reenactment, but whatever floats your boat...
I think the specifications for our vessels were slightly different, as mine is a little more portable.

I think I'll stick with Lucy's ark! Bit easier to get in the van.

Amersfoort Wim? Best chips with mayonnaise I ever had came from Amersfoort. :D

It generated lots of attention, and a couple of orders, so, happy to have had it on the stand. I assume you had problems getting to the show? If you'd like it posting, just email me your address on lucythetudor@gmail.com and I can courier it to you, or if you'd rather not pay the courier, let me know which show you'd like to collect it from- we'll be at Tatton, Cosmeston, Tewkesbury, Kelmarsh, Shropshire lavender, and some others...

Don't forget my little horse :-) I know some one who will be very happy. Could you do a dog (greyhoundish) as well?
