Impressive and unusual C18th oak mule chest

There is a very slight loss to the brim of the mountaineer's hat, and missing pole, otherwise in excellent condition. Measures 10.5" to tip.

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.

C18th Walnut Secretaire
Beaded and imitation 'tortoiseshell' evening bag. Difficult to date with absolute certainty but definitely prewar and most probably from late 1920s-early 1930s. This example is unusual in that it has obviously seen little use and remains in almost pristine condition both inside and out. The only blemish being slight bead loss on one fringe loop (visible in photo). Less sparkly than the majority of these bags its muted colours, if intended to be used, would harmonise with many outfits.

Midwinter PORTOBELLO (shape) "Countryside" coffee set. Comprising coffee pot, sugar basin, creamer, milk jug, ten cups and ten saucers – plus one cup and two spare saucers. Designed by John Russell and in production from in 1966 to 1972. Transfer patterns of seeds and leaves in shades of brown. Excellent vintage condition – with just a small hairline crack to side of milk jug and very slight crazing of interior of sugar basin. W. R. Midwinter Ltd. was founded in 1910, becoming one of the largest potteries in England by the 1930's, with over 700 employees. However, it was in the post-War period under the direction of the founder's son, Roy Midwinter that they became one of the leading innovators in the design and production of kitchen and table ware, with the work of noted designers and ceramicists like Jessie Tait, John Russell, Terence Conran, Hugh Casson and Peter Stott.
