Green vintage Cathrineholm bowl (ends 28 Jun, 2015 21:01:13 BST)

Cathrineholm just keeps getting more and more popular. When it appears on eBay it’s virtually guaranteed to sell, no matter what condition it’s in. This 8-inch avocado green Cathrineholm bowl is for sale by Crossways Enterprises*. It’s described as being in “good, used condition”, just a couple of scratches and tiny chips to the rim.

It’s currently £8.29 with an additional £3 P&P – so cheap! One sold a fortnight ago for £38. The going rate for the 8-inch size is around the £40 mark.

*Crossways Enterprises works to empower Crossways residents and local communities to combat exclusion and stigma regarding mental health. they aim to provide a person-centred platform from which to serve communities through sustainable projects and thus enabling each individual to realise that they are valued. Their vision is to build communities where people of all backgrounds are included and have the opportunity to live in dignity with hope for the future.

Vintage Whitefriars nipple vase

We have a high-end Charity Vintage item for you this week. Helen & Douglas House* are selling this fantastic vintage Whitefriars nipple vase.

An identical vase, in the same sage green colourway, sold in March for £800. Another nipple vase, in kingfisher blue, ends tomorrow and is currently at £450. Yet another, in aqua, is for sale elsewhere online with a price of £900. This example above is listed with a ‘buy it now’ price of £800 but they are open to offers; a very fair price.

Up until fairly recently, we had a collection of tangerine Whitefriars art glass. However, as is the way when you’re vintage dealers, items come & go, ebb & flow.

*Helen & Douglas House is a registered charity providing respite and end of life care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions, as well as support and friendship for the whole family.
