collection of vintage homwares including a vintage push along horse, pair of Hornsea Pottery 7 Dwarfs mugs, Manchester milk bottles and atomic drinking glass set in rack

Here’s a small selection of recent vintage buys.

vintage push along horse

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.

vintage red alarm clock

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!

pair of Hornsea Pottery 7 Dwarfs mugs

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.

set of 6 atomic drinking glasses in wire rack

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.

collection of Greater Manchester half pint milk bottles

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.

Three Hornsea Muramic wall plaques for sale by & on behalf of British Heart Foundation(earliest listing ends 5 May, 2014 20:23:17 BST)

The British Heart Foundation* is currently auctioning four vintage framed Hornsea Muramic wall plaques. A stylised pheasant, two dove-like birds and a woman. They were all designed by John Clappison for Hornsea Pottery in the 1970s. They don’t come up for sale that often – the last girl sold for £98 and the last two pheasants went for £75 and £112. None of them are anywhere near those prices at the moment. Bid on the lot and you’ve got yourself an instant collection!

At the moment we have 1,300 images uploaded to our Flickr photo stream. Currently holding at #6 in popularity is our photo of a collection of Hornsea mugs.

When we saw this collection of Hornsea mugs being sold by and in support of British Heart Foundation* we knew we had to share it with you. The lot is currently at £68, which we think is still a very good price for 8 mugs. There isn’t much time left to bid – just over a day – so if you’re interested you’d better hop to it!
