Discovering treasures

When we were preparing our Cart Shed café for opening we discovered some hidden treasures in the drawer of a table.

These stencils were for flower boxes.  We think they may be from the 1940s as our records show that C H Beauchamp was sending flowers to Covent Garden market and elsewhere at this time. Beauchamp was born in the 1880s so we think there where most likely used by him or his garden staff at the time.
