    I adore Stanhope peeps! My collection began as a total accident! I was looking for a religious item for an art project and found a carved crucifix. It turned out to have a tiny photograpic repro./etching of a church in it! I was simply amazed by this and started researching it.

    Turns out it was carved Oxbone and called a 'Stanhope peep' and there were more of these out there! And an addiction/obsession was born! I now have a small but hard won collection of five peeps. They are my pride and joy!

      There is huge stock of unmounted vintage lenses on eBay (ten quid each). Not cheap but worth buying because they can be easily inserted in 3 mm hole (in jewelry or whatever).
