Expeditions would sometimes rely on commercial sponsorship, and numerous companies provided Scott’s expedition with the equipment they needed, from foods and medical stores to woolly underwear and fuel. In return, the companies could use the expedition in their advertising. One of which was J. S. Fry & Sons, who provided the expedition with 'Fry's Pure Concentrated Cocoa.'
This hand painted creation is a reproduction concept of the crates that can still be found in Scott's Cape Evans hut.

Pete's fantastic artwork is highly evocative of the Golden Age of Polar Exploration. His attention to detail in being true to the original expedition relics while creating reproductions that convey a sense of antiquity is commendable. His products are great pieces of art and conversation pieces. Pete's speedy service, great communication and careful shipping created nothing but a very positive experience for anyone fortunate enough to own his originals.

I love this piece! I keep it on the wall to remind myself that Shackleton survived because he recruited the right people.
