Pretty Porcelain

I am not sure why, but as you may have guessed, pretty porcelain has always been a great passion of mine. There are so many beautiful styles and designs — I must confess to “falling in love” with far too many of them. This week I have come across a few appealing items which I have listed on bidorbuy. You can also buy directly from me by emailing me at info@thedaisychain.co.za or contacting via the facebook page. So without any further ramblings …. here they are:

1. 27cm Minton “Haddon Hall” Plate (Designed by John Wadsworth) (R180):

I know I shouldn’t have favourites but this is my favourite of the week! (and one I was sorely tempted to keep). This exquisite plate would look beautiful on display. In excellent condition, this is a must for any collector of English porcelain.

 

2. Tiny 8cm Wedgwood Pin Tray/ Plate (R30):

This is a small 8cm plate/ pin tray made by Wedgwood. In good condition and a very appealing little piece.

 

3.Antique Booths Lovesoft Border” 25cm Serving Plate (R130):

From what I can work out, this plate would have been made between 1906 and 1912 — making it a very old piece. It is in good condition. There is just one small imperfection on the back of the plate which looks to be a manufacturing flaw rather than a chip. The piece is beautifully detailed, complete with gilding and raised sections on the handles. Would look stunning on display.

 

4. Booths “Lovesoft Border” 17cm Plate (R40):

From what I can work out, this plate would have been made between 1906 and 1912 — making it a very old piece. It is in good condition. There are a couple of small brown stains on the plate — it is an old piece

 

5. Wedgwood “Metallised” Bone China Vase (R40):

This elegant bone china vase is in good condition and stands 13cm high. Perfect for a single rose.

 

6. Royal Winton 12cm Vase (R90):

7. Copeland Spode 19.5cm “Wicker Lane” Plate (R55):

This pretty plate is in good condition. It has a wire plate hanger with it which I will include as it does make hanging it up easier.

8. Royal Albert 15.5cm “Celebration” Plate (R65):

This beautiful plate is in good condition. Would look stunning on display. Definitely one of the prettiest plates you could find!

2. Swiss “Bopla” Coffee Mugs (Pair) — (R90):

This unusual and “arty” pair of coffee mugs are in good condition. From what I can see these mugs sell for about $40 each in Europe they are clearly quality items. The price I am asking is a real bargain! The name of the design is “Rhinophant” . Each mug is about 10cm tall and both are in good condition. The mugs are stackable.

3. Crown Devon Dog Ornament (R220):

These adorable Crown Devon dogs are highly collectable. Made in the 1930’s they are full of “retro charm”. This little chap I’m selling is in good condition and he stands about 14cm high. Perhaps he would cheer up a little if you would give him a home in your collection?
