    I am, very reluctantly, having to sell some of my collection to create more space. I am therefore offering the following items for sale at what I consider to be very fair prices and reflect what I actually paid for them. They are located near Romsey, Hampshire and are available on a collection basis only. The 8 pics below may not be in the correct order but are easily identified, apologies. Orton & Spooner Ark Horse. Complete with all the chrome trims and with an absolute known provenance as coming from A117 Tucker's Ark that travelled mainly in Yorkshire. I have restored the left side to it's original colour scheme and left the right side unrestored. The seat has been recovered. It is completely sound with no rot. 42" X 39" X 10". £275. Bensons Double Sided Dropper. This was one of a set of 3 boards that hung across the main entrance to Bensons Ark A67. The reverse carries a highly decorative floral pattern. The other 2 boards reading Electric, Thriller, are known to exist but I know not where. Numerous photos can be found on line showing the boards. Totally unrestored and probably unique. 60" X 16". Slightly curved to reflect the radius of the ride. £340. Bensons Twist Car seatpanel. A metal panel that was attached to the back of a Bensons twist car. Fully restored to original colours. 42" x 20". £125. Roll - up Board complete with correct size rubber balls. Restored apart from the decorative floral pattern in the centre which is in perfect condition. Sound with no rot. A written inscription on the reverse reads :- G. Miller, Fairground, Fakenham, Norfolk. This game creates much amusement at parties. 54" x 18" . £ 130. Rounding Board from a Juvenile ride. Fair unknown but possibly from the Derby area. Fully restored to it's original colours and design. 56" x 10" £100. Stall Gag Board Restored, fair unknown. 24" x 20". £60 Decorative carved Bracket. Unrestored. I was told when I bought it many years ago it was from a dodgem track paybox at Rhyl but this is unconfirmed. 16" x 8" x 9". £40 I can provide far more information, and photos, as necessary on all items to serious enquiries. My total asking price for these 7 items is £1,070 but, start your own collection, I'll take £950 for all 7 if anyone is interested ! If anyone is seriously interested in more than I item I will consider reasonable offers but I believe I have priced these pieces at very realistic levels given their provenance / condition. My mobile number is 07870 390066 Andy
