The English designer, poet and novelist William Morris famously said:
“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”
At Simon Lucas Bridge Supplies, we believe that you can have items in your home that are both useful and beautiful. Add to those two qualities items that are made to the highest standard and you have in a nutshell the philosophy that we apply when designing our own brand items.
The Lucas family have an antique set of coffee cups that are used on special occasions. Each cup is a different colour, and it’s always such a treat to use them. Wanting you to have the same pleasure from using top-quality, beautiful items, we used the coffee cups as the inspiration for the Simon Lucas Bridge Supplies Score Card Holders.
We decided to cover them in hand screen-printed Japanese paper because it’s very strong, it’s available in the different colourways we were looking for, and because, with it’s gold detailing, it’s exquisitely beautiful.
With a charming box to keep them pristine between games, each set of Score Card Holders has been carefully and beautifully handmade by a prestigious company operating from a little workshop in the Wiltshire countryside. With their workshop full of beautiful antique equipment and incredibly skilled workers, it’s so nice to know that Britain still has such talented craftsmen and women.
It’s with great pleasure that we offer such a beautiful product to you, and you will find that all of the score cards from the Simon Lucas Bridge Supplies score pads (including the plain pads) will fit these Score Card Holders. They’re not designed to be used with our Personalised Score Cards (as they don’t need score card holders).
