Here’s a small selection of recent vintage buys.
We love the push along horse. It dates from the 1950s/60s and was produced by Triang. A little play worn, but full of charm. It would look great in a child’s bedroom or nursery. We’ve just put it in our antiques centre space, but we could post it if any readers have got the perfect little stable for it.
We’re always drawn to these old alarm clocks – they add a colourful, vintage touch to a bedroom – if the ticking doesn’t keep you awake, of course!
This wonderful pair of mugs were produced by Hornsea Pottery in the 1970s – and feature the seven dwarfs. They’re by designer John Clappison – unmistakable really! We’re listing them on eBay as they have a really strong collectors’ appeal. The first one has just ended, and we’ll be putting the second one on shortly.
These vintage glasses are real eye poppers – lovely to get the original atomic-styled wire stand too. They’ve got a classic retro diner/milk bar look to them.
We blogged about these charming little vintage milk bottles earlier in the week. They’re all from different Manchester dairies, and as we mentioned in the post, perfect for a small spray of flowers.
