Based in stunning Speyside, Moray, Scotland, we (Mr & Mrs W) are passionate about quality antique items with great design and evident craft, predominantly from the 18th, 19th and early 20th century. In particular, we enjoy period items reflecting the beautiful design and aesthetic changes from the decorative arts, from circa 1850 - 1960. Including the Aesthetic Movement, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts Movement (In particular of Scottish origin), Modernism, Art Deco and Streamlining. We also enjoy the great craft and quality construction in folk art and vernacular items from across Europe. In particular, Scandinavian decorative items from the 18th and 19th Century. We enjoy being analytical in our approach and supporting our stock with background research, provenance and history through researching the items, the period, designers and retailers. We often hunt the country from our Scottish location, but routinely search from Lancashire and Yorkshire as well as buying trips further afield to supply items online. We also like to take on items that particularly interest us from earlier periods, dependent on our fascination for an object. We are always learning, and happy to share knowledge gained, so please do get in touch. Thanks for viewing our selection of stock, we are always pleased to see items pass through our hands to new owners and homes as antiques remain a great green recyclable purchase!

For sale is a beautifully tactile little Scottish glazed cat penny bank / money box in upright repose (Shown here as the cat on the left of the image with two shown) - Scottish penny bank in simple treacle brown slip glazed earthenware form. These are money boxes or 'Pirley-pigs' from the late 19th century. - The charming little Scottish vernacular piece is a slotted earthenware money-box for small savings, used esp. by children. It has a wide slot for coin deposits. - Pottery in an attractive deep brown glaze with a simple / naively modelled face in a folk art style with original firing crack and one small ear nick. - Likely to be Scottish in origin from the Rosslyn's pottery in Kirkcaldy produced these fascinating little recreations. A highly charming, collectable and beautiful little item which satisfied our vernacular Scottish interest in particular along with a love of moggies! *In the photographs, the cat positioned on the left is the one listed here.
