Pottery Aspirations

Pottery-Range

Although we have only recently instituted our ‘Pottery Gallery’ it is our desire this year to progress forward by augmenting our collection of antique English pottery. Being January the antique Slipware and Sussex pottery we so love is a bit thin on the ground, but we shall be searching high and low in the next few months to purchase pots interesting in design, colour and form.
Though we are currently fortunate possessing a number of special pieces of Antique English Slipware we are just as keen to buy items in the lower price range – as our Kingdom still appears overcast with economic malaise and it remains a fact of life [although times are gradually improving]  it is still easier to sell something under £1000.00 than over it!

Changes to Call Me Naive Website

Sussex-Turnip-Money-box

 

For those of you reading this who did not have the advantage of receiving last weeks newsletter, we would like to point out the
changes to our website.

Firstly we now have a dedicated pottery gallery where we will exhibit English Creamware and English Polychrome Delftware beside the English Slipware and Sussex Pottery we specialise in. There is also now a dedicated Picture Gallery where we will continue to exhibit the Antique Naive Paintings we are so fond of. Folk Art and items of English Country Furniture along with Antique
Treen, Antique Pewter, Antique Needlework, Antique Oak Furniture, Antique Oak Carvings and Naive Works of Art will now all be exhibited on our main gallery. We are anticipating that these changes will facilitate easier navigation of our website.

Lastly I would like to bid our readers and customers a very prosperous and Happy New Year.

New Pottery Gallery

slipware_honeypot
We are thrilled to announce that next week we will have a new pottery gallery on our website dedicated to Antique English Pottery.
This new gallery will concentrate on items of English Slipware and Sussex Pottery in particular.
Set aside are a number of new items to celebrate this event. Included amongst these riches are a large candlestick 14″ high. A rustic agate tobacco jar. A Turnip Money-box and a superb carpenters bag in absolutely perfect condition, which was produced by Caroline Mitchell at the Belle Vue Pottery, Rye at the end of the 19th century.

In the future our ‘Main Gallery’ will exhibit Antique Country Furniture, period Oak and examples of British Folk Art which may include Antique needlework, antique pewter, antique treen and antique leatherware. We will also have a new picture gallery which will exhibit our collection of naive paintings.
We would like to take this opportunity of wishing all our readers and customers a Very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

Antique Country Furniture

Some people will associate me with country furniture as this is what I started out dealing in, but currently this is proving even more difficult than Slipware to find!

Having said that, I was lucky to recently purchase one piece from the illustrious Petworth antiques dealer who trades under the name of David Swanson Antiques.

A small Fruitwood side table, very charming and at only 22” wide it even fits into our tiny cottage.
