At Post Script Antiques and House Clearance, we love to buy one off pieces. Film props, models, sports memorabillia, carnival, circus and fair ground items, amusement arcade and pinball machines, architectural salvage, early toys etc etc.
We are not worried about quantity or size we just love the weird stuff! Here are some of the things we have bought over the years.
A 12′ x 10′ Georgian panelled room divider with carved monarch heads, scrolls and fretwork opening panels described in six cantilevered doors.
A Victorian dog food sign depicting circus dogs.
A 1/4 size working model of a Spitfire used in a Hollywood film.
Two framed and glazed signed pastels by the PSYCHIC ARTIST Carol Polge who used to draw pictures of her spirit guides!!

We cleared a house in Greenwich and this was in the garage, we bought it and sold it straight on to one of our friends as a restoration project.
This 1966 Series 1 E Type Jaguar was also offered to us when we were involved in the purchase of an estate in Kent. We jumped at the chance of buying it and are currently having it restored (watch this space for pictures of the finished car!)
I promised an update and here it – three years after we purchased this Jaguar from a barn in Kent here is what we have had done to it!
We’re always looking for unusual fairground, advertising, motoring and toy items such as pedal cars and amusement/arcade games. Here’s some photographs of a collection belonging to a valued customer of Post Script that we have helped to build (and helped sell some of the items too!)
Anatomical models: real human skull articulated for use as teaching model; wax moulage heads and body parts from real patients (alive and dead) used as 3D reference models c1920. We are always looking for wierd curio or medical antiques.
