Welcome to Talbot's Fine Accessories
| Talbot's Fine Accessories has been in business since 1990. It
is run by Doug Strong who has been building a personal collection
of medieval antiquities for the past 30+ years. He is especially
interested in acquiring "objects of everyday life" of the medieval
time period: buttons, buckles, munitions grade armour, brooches,
rings, shoes, clothing, spurs, coins, etc... Doug holds a Bachelor
of Arts degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, a Master of
Science degree in Communication Education, a Master of Arts in
Special Education, a Master of Arts in School Administration and a
Doctorate in Educational Leadership. Dr. Strong serves on
the Board of Directors for the Armour Research Society. He is well
known in the medieval living history community and has been active
since the early 1980s. There are three pages offering a variety of
original Medieval and Renaissance antiquities, reproduction
artifacts and how-to books and videos.
