5 Made by J Evans & Sons London. In 1865 they were listed at 114 Newgate St,London as importers of foreign beads, toys etc. Retailed by John Way Lovegrove 42 High St Wells. Kelly's directory of 1895 lists them as Drapers & Fancy Bazaar. Note extremely rare stringing pattern consisting of 18 mains 16 cross strings & 30 diagonal strings wound around the mains & crosses. Also 4 sets of thick gut trebling to the head & 6 to the throat. Primitive rounded grip & slight lob to the head. This is the only example I have seen of this stringing.
