How to purchase

Thank you very much for arriving at this page of my website!

If you wish to make a purchase, please make contact first to check that it has not been sold already.  We try to keep the website up-to-the-minute, but there can be the occasional lapse.   You can either e.mail me on or on (that's RNHB, not MHB) or call me on  +44 (0) 7831 194 997. 

Please note that while we quote prices in US and Australian dollars and Euros, all transactions are done in £s sterling (GBPs).  I would like you to buy in your own currency, but my bank charges heavily for that privilege.  Also, and especially since 'Brexit', currency exchange rates have varied considerably.  I try to keep an approximation of current rates on my website, but please take note that my prices are in UK Pounds, so please consult as necessary.

My preferred method of payment is by direct bank transfer, which is the cheapest way of paying for both you and me.   My bank sort code is 23-05-80 and my account number is 14580492 and my IBAN is GB43MYMB23058014580492, and the BIC is MYMBGB2L.  Cheques are to be avoided if possible please, as I have to drive 20 miles to my bank to pay them in, pay to park then drive home again! 

For buyers outside the UK, there are many ways to transfer money avoiding the excessive charges by banks and Paypal.  Search engines throw up several suggestions if you type in "International Money Transfers" and the one we have used is TransferWise - but there others.  They will need the address of my bank which is Metro Bank, 1 Christ's Lane, Cambridge, CB2 3BZ.   They may also need my postal address, which is 18 Churchill Avenue, Haverhill, Suffolk CB9 0AA, UK. 

All couriers require your telephone number so please include that information with your order.

We package and send to all parts of the world - even the most delicate of glass.  We take pride in packing securely in double-walled boxes, and we use acid-free tissue paper and bubblewrap to ensure your purchases arrive in the condition they left us. 

We use price comparison sites for shippers giving you the best value we can, passing on our costs to you without an added mark-up.  To do this. we need your address (obviously) and your telephone number which is required by nearly all couriers.

Finally please remember that we guarantee that everything we sell is as described on our invoices and on the website.
