Unpleasantries

Many words and phrases in existence have changed their form, been absorbed or sunk without a trace over the years. Our ‘Unpleasantries Range’ is inspired by Victorian sources featuring old language which has long since been forgotten. This humorous range intends to bring back some old sayings and often hilarious and delightful words which have fallen out of fashion.
