Please note: the last remaining clips have slight stains or markings on the surface, from the brass finishing process. Because of this, we have slightly reduced the price. Our seconds sale items are all brand new, but the product or the packaging has arrived from our suppliers in less than perfect condition. We hate waste, so are offering these curiosities at a reduced cost.
This super-grip, multi-purpose metal clip is as tough as it looks. Really strong and really useful around the home, from sealing food packets to organising the office. Extra large size with a brass finish, made from metal (nickel plated steel) and highly recyclable. Design by SUCK UK

It is believed that the English word "skull" comes from the Old Norse word "skulle". Cranium is a Latin word which comes from the Greek root κρανίον (kranion). There are 22 bones in the human skull (teeth are not part of this), and they are divided into the cranium (8 bones) and face (14 bones). You think of the skull as a solid structure, but it contains lots of small holes called foramina, these allow the passage of nerves and blood vessels throughout the face.
Many people are fascinated with skull imagery and symbolism. Throughout the years, skulls have been used as warnings (i.e poison/toxicity), art (e.g Vanitas or 'Memento Mori'/'Remember You Must Die' allegories), literature (e.g Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'), cultural celebrations (e.g the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead) and War (Nazi SS insignia). Today, skulls continue to be used heavily in tattoo culture, fashion and in cutesy cartoons.
