The mark looks like one of the fakes that keeps turning up at the moment. I keep seeing blue and white jugs and bowl sets in charity shops, and checked online and it seems there are a lot about that a...
Thanks Tallcakes, I wondered what the 3 in 1 referred to, but it’s obvious when you point it out!
Thanks very much Keramikos.
Thank you Jenni. I think most of the big British pottery is now made in the Far East. I know a lot of Portmeirion comes from China now. I love the colour of the vase, I just think the definition of th...
I recognise a lot of these stamps. I have a huge stamp collection stashed away somewhere!
Maybe for a shaving brush?
I found a small John Peel jug today, which surprised me because I never realised you could get it in different sizes. The small jug is 5" to the rim, the large one 7".
Very pretty brooches, and hope you get better quickly.
I think the Famille Rose plates are very pretty. I have a large one that has made in China on the back, I will have to put it on here to see what you think!
Thank you Dizzydave, I have checked out Bessi Glass, and this does look like their Cat decanters.
The glass is actually clear, it just looks a bit yellow in the photo's. Probably the rather poor light we have here today!
It could be Heron Glass? Or maybe John Ditchfield.
Yes a stoat is very like a weasel, just smaller!
I love the bust. It’s probably got paint and glue on it because it’s been kept in a garage or workshop! I’m amazed how often I have found an interesting piece of glass and it’s got sprays of paint on.
Thanks Tallcakes, just when I think I have it solved! Mine does look like the Crystal D'Arques one, but mine only has the base frosted.
I have found one on ebay described as Royal Crystal Glass Figurine, Labrador Retriever and Pups. I am trying to find out more about Royal Crystal!
Thank you Malkey and Keramikos.
Lovely brooches. I think my favourite is the Christmas Tree!
This vase is beautiful.
I know it's a bit mundane, but I thought waste paper basket when I saw it!
Has it got a base?
Thanks Elizabethan, will check it out. I will have to see if I have the Antiques roadshow recorded. I usually do.
Alan the bird is a European Robin. I live in the Uk, and it is our most loved garden bird. Very friendly, comes and watches while you do the garden
The box is not mine I took pic off internet to illustrate that it's called vintage! I am aware of the American Robin. It always jarred with me that in Mary Poppins, set in London, that an American Rob...
I've added a pic of the box.
I am in the UK and it's the first time I've come across one of these. When I said it said vintage on the box, I meant the original name printed on the box was Vintage 5 Part Relish!
Thanks Freiheit, it could well be 70's. It's 3" long 1.5" wide.
I know what you mean about having to much! It’s very hard to let go though.
I have been trawling through The Glass Trinkets website, and I think this set may be by Bagley Glass. There is only a picture of a candlestick on the site, but it looks to be identical to these candle...
I thought I'd solved these dishes, as I found a pomander recently with the same design of these dishes, with a label on the bottom. it said "Ye Olde Ceramic Pomander - Aidees of Torquay - Bovey Tracey...
No I havn’t! I have seen glass bowls (fruit bowls) in the same pattern, but this one has escaped me so far.
Thanks Racer4Racer, I discovered a few of this set on the English Glass Trinket Sets, and no-one seems to be able to identify this pattern.
The colour is wonderful. I don’t know how you managed to carry it home! I struggled to carry my sundae dishes and trinket set 200 yards to the car!
Looks like it would glow well under UV light!
I would think Royal Worcester would mark their vases. I love the painting on this vase though.
Thanks Tallcakes, I thought the colour was amethyst at first, but when the sun went in it looked more orange or Amber!
I've put my tea box on so that you can compare. Mine is much smaller and not such an interesting shape!
Thank you for all the loves for these pretty Vaseline glass dishes. I've finally got round to unpacking the rest of the set, so have put some different pictures showing them all.
It could be a souvenir box which came with tea in, or something like that. I have a wooden rectangular box at home somewhere, which looks similar, which hubby brought home to me from China. I think my...
Pickfords are a well known removal firm in the UK, and I’m pretty sure they have moved us more than once! I seem to picture their lorries as being dark blue though!
Thanks Tallcakes, I missed that!
Thanks Keramikos, for that info. I did think it would be older, but seller was adamant that it would have been bought new for a wedding present! She didn’t pick up that the dishes were uranium glass e...
Is it porcelain or earthenware, ie can you see the light through it? Chines porcelain often has a bluish tinge to it, whereas English tends to be whiter - which this bowl looks. It’s very pretty.
The registration number 1920 dates it to 1884, though there is also a lozenge registration mark, which was replaced by the registration number in 1884, so I think that dates it to 1884!
I think the flowers are forget-me-nots and maybe lily of the valleys! I’m not sure about mark, but it does look like a smiley face!
I have 2 0f this picture! By Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, I brought the first picture new in the early 1980's, and I'm pretty sure it cost me £25 then (probably a weeks wages then!) but I've alwa...
No news yet Eileen, thanks for that.
Thank you for looking Ms.Crystalship. It’s very frustrating thinking it should be easy to find info on something, and not finding a thing!
I think in the early 20th century, people wouldn't bat an eyelid at taxidermy! It's not something I like though!
See all 2000
