Ransomes Budding

This is an item I would have brought along to the AGM this weekend, found 20/30yrs ago by a metal detectorist about 13 miles West of Ipswich, buried in an orchard.

The casting is an exact copy of the Ransomes 1832 advertisement/image for the Budding mower, although a handle may have been lost over the years!

Perhps this is the nearest we will get to unearthing an original Budding mower?
