Greens New Century
One for Sean!
Hi Sean. Being aware of your love of Thomas Green's mowers have you seen the New Century that is for sale on the Bay of E?
Complete with Thrower Plate and Grass Box!...........Unlike my Ransomes 'The Leo' !!
Apologies if you already have one or have seen this already.
Just to let you know I did manage to win the auction and secure this rather unique and almost complete mower. Highly unusual to find one with an original box and the very ornate and complex plate. It was unfortunately missing the badge (11inch) however Clive has secured a badge for me which now makes the mower extremely desirable. Thanks to all involved. I will do an entire feature on the mower once I've collected it.
Glad you got the mower Sean and great that Clive can sort out a badge for it. Looking forward to hearing/seeing more about it when you get it.
Herewith the New Century in all its glory. Fantastic having the throw plate. Pity the box has been painted an awful green - easily remedied. Hope you enjoy the photos.
Great photos Sean, it looks in really good condition considering it's age, need to see it when you have had the 'oily rag' on it!! As you say, the paint colour is........different but maybe it has offered the wood some protection over the years? and as you say it is easily remedied Cheers. Rob
