    Hi guys
    I've been looking for this for years, I put it a way somewhere and for 8 years I've been trying to find it, and now I have. It was tucked away in the attic.
    It's really heavy, it's 11 inches high and has cylinders cut out of the foam
    It's pretty dirty as I've not cleaned it yet, I was hoping someone mite share some light on it before I did anything to it.
    I'm not sure how old it is ? And I haven't a clue what I was used for.
    The only marks on it is T.A.G on the front and on the back
    "protex redditch uk"
    I can't wait to see it all shiny and polished. It got a really nice look and feel to it.

      Hi walksoftly :)
      Hope you are doing well.

      It doesn't look like something made in the UK.
      The only T.A.G I know of would be the watch, I had a look but couldn't find anything yet.
      il see if I can find a rough date on them hinges, thanks walksoftly

      Hi know this has been on here for a long time but did you find out what it was? Just found one in my garage which I got from a boot sale years ago and still curious as to what it's for. Many thanks Carl
