A couple more pieces of Torquay pottery and an embroidery
First, this beautiful embroidery which I bought at Malvern on Sunday. I just couldn't resist it and thought it was worth the £10 I paid for it. I will probably get it framed later.
Then a pretty piece of Torquay, with a slight glaze problem so probably a Friday afternoon piece. It makes it mortal anyway, and it came cheaply enough.
This lovely big piece came from Builth, where it was just £8.
These I just HAD to have. I didn't have a pinch-top piece like the vase on the left, and I am still trying to pin down the pottery that made the nearly pair of vases - I have NEVER seen that eel/snake shape on anything else.
I am feeling under the weather today and had to have a sofa day, though I have been sewing and finishing off a lovely chain-stitch wool embroidery that my dear late friend Annie had been working on for her daughter. I am seeing her daughter tomorrow so need to get on and complete it.
