Welcome to my latest follower :o)
Here's the rest of my haul I promised to show. I should explain display and photos were done in a hurry during the evening, so photos are taken in artificial lighting.
These have been haunting me in the shop for over a week. I've looked and looked at them and kept thinking do I really NEED anymore crockery? The answer has to be no I don't, but I just couldn't resist any longer ;o) I'm just amazed that no-one else beat me to the bargain!
A set of six each dinner and salad plates, soup dishes. one meat plate, one gravy boat and two lidded vegetable dishes in Washington Pottery Indian Tree design, all perfect except one salad plate has a tiny chip to the edge.
Don't they look good? Not a sign of blue or white to be seen either!
Set on golden chargers, and using the padded runner I got last week for £2
Oh, and the napkin ties I showed in my last post, and covered vegetable dishes.
The lovely meat plate.
One of my many sets of place markers - would you like to see more?
Showing the backstamp.
Presuming the '56' is the year of manufacture, as old as me ;o)
And the cost? Fifteen pounds for the lot! Yes £15 :o) Would you have snapped them up?
I'm glad I did! Just one teeny, tiny problem ...where to store them! At the moment they're sitting on the dining table.
I also forgot to show my other bargain -
A lovely Wade trinket box about 4" long shown with two Wade Whimsey hedgehogs. The one on the left was one if my original one purchased in the 1960's with pocket money, (always one of my favourites) and the one on the right was with the large one - both for £4. In all the years I have collected whimseys I've never seen a large hedgehog. Has anyone else seen them or got one?
Hope the rest of the week goes well for you all.
I've just had a phone call to say that Wilfred Prickles has reached the magic 600g weight, and so tomorrow will be returning 'home' for his Winter snooze, I'm just a little delighted!
