Vintage market

After what seems like ages I will be returning to the North London Vintage Market for their next sale on 1 June.

I haven't sorted out exactly what I will be taking yet, but these are a few bits and pieces of ceramics that might be appearing.

Ally Pally finds

It was the giant Ally Pally antique fair this morning. I was quite restrained and only bought these three things!

Dartington daisy bowl

This is another one of my Rye finds.

It is a large Dartington glass 'daisy' bowl designed by Frank Thrower. I have had quite a few of these before but this is the first one I have seen in the grey coloured glass known as 'midnight'.

I am told these are quite rare and I think it probably dates from the 1960s as the colour was discontinued from 1967.

Cinque Ports Pottery

It would be wrong to go on holiday to Rye and not buy something from the Rye potteries.

I bought this little pot in a junk shop in Hastings on our minimoon. From the back stamp it looks like an early piece made by the Cinque Ports Pottery between 1956 and 1960.
