A very pretty little silver pin dish hallmarked London 1902. Lion passant, leopard's head, date letter G. The makers mark is rubbed so unreadable. The details of the five cherubs on the dish are somewhat worn through years of polishing, also the left hand edge of the pin dish has a slightly flattened area where it has taken a knock at some point in its history.

The dome shaped mahogany frame supports an original mirror plate.The plinth has lovely scroll carved feet. Overall a nicely proportioned and attractive mirror in very good antique order which will make a fine addition to any location.
A delightful set of eleven Delft plates dating to the mid 18th century. They are hand painted with stylised oriental flower and tree design. Fritting to the edges of the plates as you expect with tin glaze, also the occasional heavier chip to a couple. They will make a good display on a dresser rack.
A good set of ten Art Nouveau oak dining chairs dating to about 1900. The chairs are a lovely rich oak colour. They have a pleasantly shaped nouveau style back splat, rush seats and pad feet. This set of antique chairs are in good condition having been cleaned, repaired and waxed.
A nice little framed painting of Belstone Moor, Dartmoor 1921 - these details are pencilled on the reverse. I believe it is a gouache painting, as it is too thick for watercolour. The painting has good colour, and is in its original 1920s gild mount and frame. The painting is signed R.J.Lugg (Robert James Lugg). Looking online, he seems to have been quite a prolific artist, and there are images of numerous similar artworks showing moors, heathers etc.
What a lovely little souvenir of a trip to the Crystal Palace in Victorian times. This little tankard is handblown in clear glass. It then overpainted bands of ruby, into which is etched 'A present from the Crystal Palace', and a vine or hops design. I don't imagine this was an expensive souvenir at the time, it is quite rustic and not very symmetrical (looks a bit drunk), but it is quite charming, and also unusual. I have never seen one before. I purchased it from an elderly lady who was moving to a retirement home. She can remember it being in her home since she was a child. I imagine it dates to the latter Victorian days, c1890. In good condition.
