one Prinknash jug
two photos of the boys,
three part glazed flasks
four very old Fortnum and Mason honey pots,
eight 'wooden roses' from the cedar in the front garden.
and hanging above,
a 1950s Ivon Hitchens print in its original frame.
I had a heart stopping moment in a charity shop
when I thought I had found an original, high up in a dark corner.
It bears a label which reads,
by appointment Ryman & Co.,Ltd.
Fine Art Dealers
23 High Street, Oxford.
I've never been able to identify my print:
but it's probably one of his woodland scenes.
For a blog with Shelf Appeal
do go and look at Jane Audas's site.
I met her when she was curating the
National Trust Erno Goldfinger exhibition
and she kindly agreed to give some of our old Abbatt toys an outing
in the reconstructed nursery there.
