I think the price is quite cheap at about £10 per float and a nice box! Especially considering the maker and collectability factor. I've sold floats for that much for commission requests and nobody that collects bespoke handmade floats knows anything about me etc. etc. and my floats certainly are not or ever will increase in value or be collectable or are of that quality!

If the seller threw away the box and sold them separately he may well make more money on the sale!!!

I made those in 2009 and 2010 when my float making was still in its infancy. They are ok but nothing by todays standards, they have been stashed away for a long time although i'm not sure why. I'm guessing nobody has been managing the kingfishers website so they have laid unsold for a long time. Bargain at that price but my work has moved on a lot since those early days.
