Latest find

This is a nice Rorstrand pot that I bought on ebay recently. It's a storage jar from the 'dalom' range. Often these have names of various foodstuffs on them but I like the fact that this one is plain as you can see more of the design.

Kenneth Townsend owl tile

I've recently acquired this lovely owl tile designed by Kenneth Townsend. It's from a series called 'Menagerie' and dates from the 1960s.

The website has more information about Kenneth Townsend's work and images of the rest of the Menagerie tiles.

Saturday and snow

We had another successful day at the North London Vintage Market on Saturday although it was very, very cold. I had a couple of nice vintage sewing boxes for sale which were both quickly snapped up. Here is a picture of them on the stall.

Luckily the snow held off until the evening when we were safely back home from the market. On Sunday we found that our neighbours who live in the flat below us had built this impressive snowman in the front garden..
