moving along my Mantelpiece .. on a Monday
First up we have a group of Doulton Stoneware the Pixie and the Queen of Spades are what Doulton called Bibelots, made around 1925, just little trinket dishes.
The white baby on a blue plinth is a bit earlier, probably 1910
the ashtray on the far right is a Doulton advertising piece, for their Pipe Works, and features a small drain pipe in the center.
a large Doulton Ale Jug with a motto on the front
a miniature cast iron fireplace [we have a collection of these... well we have THREE different, so I guess that's a collection],
and a recent purchase a KOSTA BODA glass owl.. so cute. I bought him to re-sell but once i had him in the house I could not bear to part with him (well not just yet anyhow).
so there you have a few more centimeters of our very long mantelpiece, and we have not reached the end yet.
If you have interesting things on your mantelpiece why not pop over to Fortune Favours... and add them to the list of Monday Mantelpieces.
