A few treasures (to me - maybe trash to others!) for upcoming fairs ...
It's seen better days, but as far as I'm concerned it just adds to its charm. Heavy, original enamel sign - I love the colours.
Hudson's were the first company to sell soap flakes for laundry (mid 1800's). Prior to this, housewives had to grind their own from solid bars of soap. The product was extremely popular and Hudson's rapidly expanded, due in part to their strong advertising campaigns, which included bright posters and enamel signs, designed by professional artists (they were one of the first companies to use these enamel signs, before Pears and Lever Bros).
Gorgeous little painted iron bassinet on wheels.
Very heavy head!
Little gold painted cast money box to celebrate the Queen's coronation
Perfect 1930's crinoline lady teapot
More pretty linens in need of a launder and a blow in the wind.
Hope you are all having a good week. Bad news today has sent me reeling.
