Both the castle and roses transfers were available from the museum at Stoke Bruerne, I bought some a while back. I don’t know if they still have copies for sale?

 

The Boat Shop at Braunston bottom lock has transfers: http://www.boatshopbraunston.co.uk/canal-transfers.html

Hi Rob

That looks mightily like the hand of Ian Kemp to me, didn’t he have a hand in Leo’s restoration? Or be completely responsible for it? If so, I wouldn’t be surprised that he decorated the cabin block. Ian has largely based his work on that of Frank Nurser, I can see many parallels.

Hi Dave, Ian was involved in much of the restoration work so I'll let the group know. Thanks.

Hello there, I just wanted to ask if anyone could please confirm who this water can is painted by? I’ve been told it’s by Frank Nurser but was hoping maybe Phil or Dave or someone else could confirm, would be much appreciated!

 

Many thanks,

Kenny

Thanks for that Rose Narrowboats. The owner of the can sent me this image of the sales invoice which came with it when he bought it, claiming it’s painted by Frank Nurser, but something was telling me to come and ask here! 

 

Thanks again,
