vintage homewares

Here’s a selection of recent buys.

Close up of 'Tina' vintage print by J. H. Lynch

Ladies first, of course – a lovely vintage framed print of ‘Tina’ by J H Lynch. This one’s a very nice copy with original green hessian border.

Two white vintage Herbert Terry designed desk lamps

Two lamps by Herbert Terry & Sons next. The older of the pair, a classic Anglepoise, has the stepped base which is much sought after. It has obvious signs of wear, but we like this finish. Not battered, but loved & used. The other goose-necked lamp dates from the 1960s – we’ve not actually had this model before, but it’s a nice design – perfect for desk or bedside.

large vintage Bitossi bowl in blue, yellow and green

This Bitossi bowl is very attractive. We love the incised and stamped decoration and bold colours – very boho vintage!

Vintage blue and pink art glass vase

More handmade decoration with this glass vase with blue glass trailed over the pink marbled glass. It’s like a boiled sweet and very tactile. There’s an etched makers mark for Mdina glass to the base.

set of blue spotted Worcester Ware place mats

Finally, some vintage place mats. We’ve had this op-art like circle pattern in various shades and mat sizes over the years. They’re very eye-catching and always prove popular.

Selection of vintage purchases from November 2015

As always, the various pieces will be divided between our web shop and antiques centre space. Get in touch if you see anything that takes your fancy.
