Anchor Stone – The Merchant’s Tower

Anchor Stone Set 26AA wealthy merchant built this tower, tall and strong and straight. He filled it with his riches and a son and a dog and a mate. They lived a life a human would with happy days and sad. The tower learned a many things about the merchant and all he had. Time, it caught the merchant and his loyal dog and mate. They live beneath a different stone and passed a pearly gate. The son, he grabbed the riches and ne’r was seen again, but the tower stands upon the place where it has always been.

This tower was built with Anchor Stone Building Blocks. Anchor Stones blocks are all natural, being composed of a mixture of sand quartz, chalk and linseed oil. They look and feel like real stone. The blocks are manufactured in three colors to simulate terra cotta brick, natural sandstone and the blue slate of European roof tiles. This gives the finished structures a lifelike quality. Anchor stones are hand-finished to a high degree of accuracy, making it possible to build very complex structures. The weight and texture of the blocks are sufficient to hold the building together. There is no need for glue nor other fixings. Let your imagination go, enjoy creating with Anchor Stone.
