These irons belonged to the late Mr Turner of Turner-Bridgar, who were saddlers and harness makers by royal warrant to Queen Elizabeth II until he retired in the mid 1980's. Some of them are stamped with his initials, most are getting on for a 100 years plus and some by makers not seen very often today. In my opinion Buck made some of the best irons, I have some in my toolkit and they are the first I reach for!

They are not the prettiest tools in the workshop but have given many years of service and will give many more, as you can see the business ends are still good.

I will supply a stamped piece of leather with the Turner-Bridgar makers mark (as in photo) with each iron as a little piece of history/provenance. I hope these go to good homes.

Yes they are.

Apologies to anyone who has tried contacting me previously, I confess I haven't logged into leatherworker for long, long time.

Cheers Andy
