A fine example of the very scare and sought after 'Sex - Breakfast of Champions' overall badge from the James Hunt Formula 1 racing team, circ 1970s. Beautiful unworn patch that we would never be allowed to have today. James apart from his great racing was known for his humour and interest in the ladies. A fine badge from the days before political correctness went daft, in the seventies a racing driver’s overalls were increasingly turning into what they are perceived as now, a marketing tool for sponsors! Whilst other drivers were selling every square inch of fabric on their outfits, Jame's dry humour came through very loud and extremely clear, he thought it would be funny to wear his now world famous patch “Sex – breakfast of champions.” A scarce and refreshing blast from the past!

A scarce opportunity to aquire of an old oak dental surgeons multi-drawer instrument cabinet for conversion to a really excellent looking medal or badge cabinet. Cabinet is structurally sound though needs some work to the front lower door, door needs re-gluing into its frame basically, other wise a serious polishing and you will have a fine looking cabinet to house your collection. The drawers have a fair depth on them so can easily cater for daggers too, 2 drawers will need re-making as missing. Old English oak has a beautifully patterned grain that always looks impressive once polished. Overall size (approx) is 30 inch frontage by 12.5 inch depth and a height of 42.5 inches. Cabinet is circ 30s-40s.
