Hamley’s spring carrot

This may well be the most boring picture on this website, yet one of the most intriguing. This production spring carrot is still in its original packaging. You could buy it for 3/6d, which was not a small sum of money pre-1950s. The Davenport Collection has taken the view that, after all these years, the carrot will not be removed from its packaging. It is clear from the rust on the packaging that the spring is very rusty. The carrot is almost certainly in a bad way. The moral is: don’t store your production spring items for decades before using them.
