The Easter Plate

Four chicks, one bursting from the shell in soft blues and whites.  You can hang this one from the wall, it's just lovely.  Never used, straight from the gift shop, but no box, sorry.

Norman Rockwell Spring Buttercup plate by Gorham, Norman Rockwell First Smoke,

These two charming plates are collector's items, of course.  They're numbered, new in boxes/styrofoam.  The Spring Buttercup plate is by Gorham.  Never sold in my dad's shop, but apparently they thought the First Smoke to be very valuable, wouldn't discount it.

Royal Worcester Serving Tray Summer Morning

Gold rimmed, gold filigree, this is as lovely a serving piece as you'll find anywhere, and it is classic Royal Worcester, never used.  In the store my father asked $210.00, but we're pricing it to move.  Make an offer.
13 inches by 11.75

Royal Doulton Richelieu Rimmed Soup Bowls

These master Royal Doulton pieces mix and match with any gold rim, gold contour place settings.  Never used, they're a salvage in newspaper from my father's china shop, in perfect condition, but no boxes.

Royal Doulton English Renaissance 6 fruit bowls and Minton Aragon pieces

All of this is new old stock, meaning it came from my father's gift shop, has never been used, but might have been on display.

The two, grouped together above are a perfect match, sublime lime and gold.  The Minton Aragon cup and saucer and dinner are cursively ornate.

 Minton is the perfect filler for Royal Doulton English Renaisssance, below.  Here you see 6 fruit/dessert bowls, 5-3/8"

We also found a two-handle cream soup bowl above, can't find it anywhere online.

We probably have more English Renaissance packed away, I'll be looking for it.  But for now we're offering the six soups (although they may be fruit bowls

Minton Grassmere Vegetable Bowl

A classic, gorgeous piece, not a scratch, brand new old stock.

10.78 long, at Replacements.com they're charging $149.00.

No box, and we did wash it.  It was wrapped in newspaper after the shop closed down.

Wedgewood Doric covered oval vegetable bowl.

Royal Doulton oval vegetable bowl English Renaissance

This gold rimmed serving bowl is too stunning, brand new, although we don't have the box.

It is New Old Stock from my dad's gift shop.

I think I may have a place setting in this pattern if you're interested.

ID bracelets, new in boxes, old stock

My dad left me about 30-40 of these, mostly Spieglel. The guys used to give them to their girlfriends, engraved, of course.

Now they're used for medical emergencies.

Whatever. I'll give them all away at $5.00 a piece. But you have to take them all, and there are 30 of them, minimum. Look for them on Ebay, the Holiday Gallery.

Happy bidding!
