Sale Notes

One can’t help but smile when faced with a Shelley 'Boo Boo' nursery tea set. Designed in the late 1920s after a design by children’s illustrator Mabel Lucie Attwell, one can understand why it continues to be so popular after nearly a century.(EX260/958).

A more grown up teapot comes in the form of a Chinese Yixing (pronounced 'E-Sing') example(EX260/178). Made from a dense stoneware clay, they are almost always left unglazed so that the body can absorb traces of the tea creating a more complex flavour. They were favoured by travellers and it is rumoured if you treated your teapot well, in times of hardship it would reward you with a sustaining cuppa by the addition of hot water only.

Also with Oriental heritage is a group of twelve small Japanese cloisonné vases and jars, estimated at £80-£120. They represent an instant collection for someone or perhaps a years' worth of Christmas and Birthday presents for somebody (EX260/457).

Also on offer is a bright oil on canvas of Koi Carp that has a whiff of the Japanese about it, but in fact is the work of Stoke potter Anita Harris (EX260/308).

Amongst the furniture there is a tidy inlaid mahogany work table with fitted interior that wouldn't break the bank at £100-£150 and, for those of you that like to sit out in the sun, there is a folding hardwood campaign chair that will allow you to marshal your forces in the comfort of your garden.
