I am about to embark upon a long awaited break to the other side of the globe.This means that any orders for items from my sales site will not be serviced until early December. You may of course still order items but I would prefer that you do not pay for these until I contact you.
I will try to respond to messages but this may be sporadic.I look forward to bringing you a range of new nursing collectables upon my return in December.Thanks for your continued support.

Royal Worcester Figurine,Sister St Thomas' Hospital
I have been able to source another of these extremely desirable and scarce Royal Worcester Nursing Sister Figurines .These were modelled by Ruth Van Ruyckevelt in the late 1950s and early 1960s in a limited edition of 500 of each figure. This example is of a Nursing Sister from the Nightingale School of Nursing of St Thomas' in London.It features a seated Sister in a pink striped chair adorned with the Hospital badge to the rear.It is approximately 6 and a half inches inches tall with plinth and portrays a Sister in spotted blue uniform with white apron,complete with Belt and buckle,Nurses badge and pleated cap with bows,she is holding a book. In excellent condition with no chips,cracks or flaws
It is missing its original box and certificate
