As they say, what goes round, comes round! (Have I got that right?)
Anyway, I found some nice retro bits:-
This jug comes from my Aunt's house. She was my favourite Aunt and I wanted something to remember her by. The jug had stood on the front room window sill for as long as I can remember, and is probably older than me! Its marked on the bottom "Trentham Art Ware"
The origin on this deer is obscure! He was on the premises of the Consulting Opticians that my father took over in 1939, and stayed there until my father retired, when following the protests of my sister and I he was brought into the family home, and I collared him when both my parents died! He is marked on the side "Skeaping Wedgwood" which dates him firmly into the early 1930's
And my own little bit of retro is "The Good Housekeeping Picture Cookery" which was first published in 1950, and which was given to me as a wedding present. The cookery is as sound now as it was ever, but the presentation is delightfully 1950's! The picture top left of the collage shows a lovely photograph of the 1930's Institute ladies hard at work!
Do go to the link above to see what other retro items others have come up with! And thank you Carmi, for a great time I had going through the cookery book again!
