Antique Pewter Warming Plate
Originally one of a pair of very early Victorian curtain tie backs to which a rather whimsical tale is attached... in that a young couple who fell on hard times and lost their beautiful and grand house took just two curtain accoutrements when they had to leave it. Now destitute he sought to reinstate their fortunes by working his passage on a ship to America heading for the Californian gold fields whilst she stayed in England went into service and their two young children were cared for by relations. As a symbol of their love, a memory of better times and their former happiness each kept one with the avowed intention of re-uniting them and the family: but he never returned. A true tale or figment of someone's imagination...who knows? Be that as it may this stylish piece of Victoriana, which lost its partner so many years ago is a highly decorative conversation piece. Its diamond patent or registered design mark dates from the latter part of 1841. Its size? 9.5 inches long. Price includes postage to any UK address.

A complete coffee set from the 1960's, tall coffee pot, 6 mugs, milk/cream jug and sugar basin with their original pottery tray. This is a lovely Celtic design with soft muted colours reminiscent of moorland rock and peat. Whether you buy this to use, collect or merely enjoy as a decorative item it will enhance your home. Please note that one of the mugs does still have the gold paper sticker from first purchasing the set. Celtic Pottery Mousehole (pronounced "mous'le") is a fishing village two miles south of Penzance. Buy a local a pint of 'Tinners' in the Ship Inn on the harbour, and he'll tell you about the dire problems of the Cornish fishing industry and the injustices of EC legislation. These people, who work so hard when they have the chance - you could lose a small coin in the cracks in their hands - are watching their livelihood slowly ebb away. Not so in the mid 1960s when Bill and Maggie Fisher set up Celtic Pottery there. Maggie was a Canadian with a keen business sense. The south coast of Cornwall has strong links with Canada if you passed through Newlyn at the end of the twentieth century you would see more maple leaf flags than Union Jacks or Kernow crosses. The design for which Celtic was to become famous, Folk, was one of Bill's. Heraldic designs - aggressive cockerels with claws at the ready - were the order of the day. Maggie split with Bill and moved the pottery to Newlyn, the next village along the coast towards Penzance, taking the Folk design with her. Here she met up with Ev Stevens who ran Newlyn's Gwavas Pottery. Ev (short for Everidge) joined Maggie, and his range of designs were amalgamated into Celtic to become the Medallion range. Medallion proved to be as popular as Folk, and Celtic Pottery is remembered for just these two designs. In the late seventies Celtic became Sunset Ceramics making a different range of wares, but the sun set on Sunset within a few years. Maggie is still a very successful businesswoman. She gave up pottery and now runs trading companies in various parts of Cornwall.
