At Glasgow Architectural Salvage we come across a veritable cornucopia of unusual, interesting and often unique objects. We have decided to give them their own section and also to allow, for the first time, online sales. We've given some of these peculiar objects their own headings as we have rather a lot of some, Lace Patterns, maps and also a large amount of wonderful wooden moulds used in the process of industrial casting, these make excellent sculptural pieces and celebrate Glasgow's industrial heritage.
*********NB Fripperies are off on their Christmas holidays, back on January 6th 2020 in time for school.**********
