The top bow is a sherwood Agincourt, not a Poitiers

It's actually a "Crécy" not an Agincourt .... as commented before you'll see more on FB e.g. following album is about the "Stamford" but includes catalogue pages for the Crécy & Agincourrt

Since this picture, taken in Aug 2011, was posted in 2012 the collection has grown substantially & will sometime soon be shown on a standalone website/blog/X.

A lot more pictures are now available on Facebook:

The top bow is NOT a poitiers . It looks like an Agincourt by the same maker. The Poitiers had a two bump riser with some rare models including mercury stabilization in the riser.

Actually it is a Crecy, same design as Agincourt but solid hardwood handle rather than laminated.
Back then I didn't have sufficient background material:adverts, catalogues etc. to identify it (ditto the Poitiers) - now I do, as well as adding 2 Poitiers to the collection.
Still looking for a nice Agincourt & Stamford ....
