Shirley Nelson's Gravestock boxes

I am selling a few of the Gravestock boxes and chests Shirley bought over the years.
Shirley passed away suddenly in early 2014 and the time has come to sell the best of her equipment. I have tried to put a value on each of the items but I am open to offers.
I will send them by Royal Mail second class signed for after payment has cleared.
I will send items abroad but, unless the purchaser pays for the insurance, it will be at the purchasers risk.
If you are interested or want more information please contact me in the first instance by email using the link below and I will provide a phone number. Pictures at a higher resolution are available on request.
