Antiques

Antiques Group
For the meetings, members are asked to bring a small antique and either tell us about it or find out, with members help, if they don’t know. I will continue to reveal the secrets of the antique trade.

The inaugural meeting on Tuesday 11th January 2022, I introduced a small antique object, a 19th century child’s pottery mug with a blue transfer of two children holding a banner; written on was “wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging.” I was an insignificant antique, yet from it we can think of its manufacture and purpose and place in history. The condition was excellent, yet there were no manufacturers marks on it. It was in fact from a South Wales pottery and given out at a non conformance chapel. So, this lead us to the problems with alcohol at this time and the non-conformance movement with the spread of Chapel building in England and Wales. It also lead to pub closures on Sundays in Wales.

This group meets at the King’s Arms, 55 The Grove, W5 5DX, on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.

Convenor is Mike Perry, email through the blue bird, above right.
