This contemporary wood and metal ring has an industrial quality that captures the golden age of Victorian engineering and offers a chance to own a piece of British history.

This wooden ring comes in a presentation box with care instructions and a brief history of the 1879 Tay Rail Bridge.

Salvaged Oak ring

Salvaged Oak

In 1879 a fierce storm brought down the rail crossing near the mouth of the river Tay at Dundee. Parts of the bridge lay submerged in the river bed mud for decades before being salvaged. Some of the Oak sections were brought to a railway storage yard near Blair Atholl Perthshire, where they lay for over a century. We were lucky enough to be offered a few sections of this glorious Oak and have made a wide variety of items from it including furniture, ornaments and jewellery.
