The Crown Lynn Roadshow 15.11.15

Post  Ev on Mon 16 Nov - 9:46

What a fun day, seeing people bringing in their treasures to be valued.  The turnout wasn't as big as the last Roadshow that I went to, but there was plenty of excellent Crown Lynn that turned up.  I may as well add that there was also an English Midwinter teaset that came to be valued and a Barry Brickell pot and a Shrimp jug ...?  
Jonno came and brought some lovely pieces with him and I especially loved his tiny miniature handpotted vase.  He stayed to watch the fun and Val Monk brought in a box of treasures for Manos and James Parkinson to value too.  
I finally got to meet Juliet Hawkins who designed the Last Wave pattern as well as many others.  She told me that the designers didn't name the patterns as this was done by others.
I will come back and add more later.... in the meantime here is a link to some highlight photos on Facebook

The funniest thing to turn up was a bisque 170 female swan that was probably painted by Salisbury's as it had the remains of some white paint on one wing. She was cracked and glued and covered in dirt and had a big hole in her base. The owner had paid $5 to have her valued and the guys said the best thing to do with her was put her in the garden. Owner said he had found her at a refuse centre and thought he would donate her to the Portage Museum, but nobody seemed keen!!!
