I bought one like it at York several years ago and have made several like it over the years for event prizes. :) They've been around for a while. I doubt anything like it was made in period. It has that Victorian Medievalness about it. It does look good though. :)I agree about the probable Victorian origin, but would *dearly* love to be proved wrong by anyone who knows more about the MR finds. I have 2 I (well, the missus, actually) picked up in Shrewesbury, so I imagine it's the sort of thing that pops up at the tourist board shops in any vaguely medieval-associated town (Chester, York, Canterbury...)
