This is a lovely Brass 100 year Calendar which I have set into a hand turned Yew Wood round box. I have also fixed an old style (pre Decimalisation) Penny to the lid to add further interest. With the 100 year calender you can predict the day of the week of any date over a 100 year time scale. It really works and every one I have shown it to, love's working out the day of the week for events in the future. The date scale is from 2018 to 2117. The piece of Yew comes from an old 14th century moated farm house. A yew hedge was planted as the inner defense at the edge of the moat. The farm was abandoned about 100 years ago and the hedge reverted to the wild and became dozens of full size Yew tree's. Over the last 10 years, the farmhouse has been restored back to a lovely family home and the Yew trees have been carefully pruned and cut back to make them safe. I have actually been to the farm and I met the owners when I managed to aquire a number of seasoned logs and branches.
