36. Carlton Ware biscuit barrel, 'Raspberry' design.
37. Pottery ornament, unmarked 33 x30cm.
This is another ornament that I acquired many years ago from home. My father carted it back from somewhere on the continent in the years before he was married. His growing interest in fine china meant that I could carry off this large, lumpy object as soon as I had a home of my own to put it in. It sits on our dining room windowcill where I regard it with affection.
38. Religious pottery, maker and purpose unknown.
We spotted this ornament whilst driving through Wales on our way to crew on a friend's boat. It was one of a pair in 'Antiques Unlimited' in Cardiff, priced five pounds, ten shillings each. It is evidence of the state of our finances at the time that we couldn't afford to buy the pair and came out of the shop with just this one.
