We saw these two wonderful fish plates at a car boot sale the other week. They have Johnson Bros stamped on the back of them. I think they were made in the nineteen sixties. I Googled them and found that they were a Staffordshire pottery and went out of business in 2003, resulting in the loss of a thousands jobs and production went to China.
If you look carefully you will notice they have holes drilled through the plates. Me (we) think they are cake stand plates and we need to buy a metal doings, thingamajig metal holder for them. Do you like them?
I paid 15 Euros for them both. I have seen one on it's own for Forty Euros on Ebay. Not a bad mornings work/ shop around the car boot sales.
I particularly like the Perch. It takes me back to my Coarse Fishing days when I was much younger than today. Don't think I will sell them. We are turning into Wombles/ Hoarders. Perhaps you will see us one day on that programme on Channel Four?
The weather is still fantastic here and the potatoes are pushing their shoots through the soil every day and I am using my trusty Azada (hoe) to cover them up with soil. I am also busy weeding everywhere at the moment.
Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine.
