Some nice vessels

My op shopping forays have been pretty sparse lately...but I managed to pick these up from a local RSPCA oppy. They were very easy to overlook, and yet...they  beckoned!

When I got home and actually looked at them with my glasses on, I found a couple were stamped. One has "6 Price 13 Bristol"  and another has "Fowler 919".

The pic is my little homage to Gwynn Hanssen Pigott

There is a little beauty of a stopper that was included. I think they may have been used in an Apothecary shop but on doing a bit of research,  some of them may have been ink bottles.

Originally I was going to sell them on...but as with most things, they are being retained in the house. What isn't? Why can't I let go!!!

And just for the memories, Easter Russian sage and a clear table.

  3. I love these tones, and beautifully grouped. Great find!

  4. Your vessels are v.nice Nick, but it's the chairs around your dining table I'm eyeing off!
    How's your health? Any trips across the Nullabour planned in the not-to-distant future?

  5. Love this little collection and the Pigott reference! :)

  6. They look so good together. Great find.
