Finel Arabia Finland enamel kettle

This week on ebay I am (slightly reluctantly) selling an unusual item of vintage enamelware, this lovely Finel Arabia kettle..

I did also have some similar enamel mugs which I bought at the same time as the kettle. They were a bit battered but very collectable due to the unusual bird design.. which I think is the work of Kaj Franck.

Mystery tiles

These are two interesting vintage tiles which I have acquired. They were made at the Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh, possibly in the 1960s? I don't know anything else about them and would love to be able to identify the designer. The style is very distinctive..

Norwegian ceramics

I have been doing some buying on ebay as well as selling recently and am very pleased with two new additions to my collection of Scandinavian ceramics.

The first is this unusual fish trivet or wall hanging. I love the design of fishes and stars and the blue and white together is really bright and fresh looking..

It was made by Porsgrund of Norway and is the only piece of Porsgrund in my collection.


This is the other item, it's a nice Stavangerflint casserole dish with a design of fishes and lemons by Inger Waage.
