It is Wednesday and finally I have some time to show you some of my weekend finds. I found the lovely pink Depression glass square footed bowl at a Lions shed sale. It wasn’t a bargain, but not overly expensive and because it is for me not to sell, the price was right. It is in fantastic condition. I started out buying Depression glass to sell because I wasn’t really interested in it. Somewhere along the line I have changed my mind and now really like it. Like most collectors though I prefer the green, blue, pink and yellow over the amber but quite like the frosted amber glass. Now I look back at some of the glass I have sold with regret. Oh well (sigh), I am sure they are being loved by someone.
I saw the aqua blue and gold 50’s bowl two tables away and I had to stop myself from jumping onto and over the table to get there. I have to admit though it looked a lot better in the dingy shed than in real life. Still in pretty good nick though. I am thinking it may have been a punch bowl due to its size. I think I will keep this one also. Hmm. This is happening more and more.
Just found this one on the net:
The hand painted blue pitcher vase is marked ‘Made in England’ on the bottom and I think ‘Celtic’. I am guessing with my untrained eye 1930’s? I Googled it but could not find anything similar to it (in a hurry anyway). Great condition apart from a tiny, tiny loss of paint on the lip.
The pretty plate is marked ‘Royal Staffordshire Pottery, AJ Wilkinson Ltd, Honeyglaze’. I have a thing for the simple china patterns like this one, however not sure if this will be a keeper or not.
I welcome anyone to comment on the items I find and please feel free to correct me on anything I might write about them as I want to learn as much as I can.
More to come…
