Hi, had a luck find. Before J R R Tolkiens former home was demolished I found a postcard written to Tolkien from what is believed to be Lin Carter the fantasy author. Other items included a Adam style fireplace, stone griffin, cast iron fairy, stone face man, the carved stone "woodridings " sign, a pair of lion heads and the ornate wardrobe doors from Tolkiens former bedroom.
The items were valued in excess of £100,000 and this week have been put on Ebay with a starting bid of £75,000.
A journey I never expected to take.
