Hello Keith  -  didn't know you did Wedgwood  -  do you collect just the animals or everything?

can only think you live in a castle Keith :24: :24:  -  Apart from the occasional animal in the charity shops, Wedgwood is a factory I really don't see outside of ebay or professional antiques sources, unfortunately - but I think it's one to collect for the future if you can find it at sensible prices.

it's rare to be able to persuade them to let you 'out the back' - back occasionally they will, and I've had the odd gem that way.     It's a good job we don't live too close  -  you imagine.........you, me, Rosie, Roy, etc., and one or two more all vying for the same charity shops :24: :24:
Talk of the devil, I went out this morning after we had commented, and found an RSW 60 in a charity shop  -  sadly with a little nick out of the rim  -  so she gave it to me for 2.     Stopper has matching No., so provided I turn it round the other way, the chip can't be seen  -  mind you, it's a bit boring  -  not remotely like the Wedgwood cut decanters.

Hmmm....I'm not sure I would run all the way to the Midlands for a snail.......but a Wedgwood Otter....now that's another thing!
I'm not going to get into the 'going in the back of the shop' conversation....... :usd:
