W&W Antiques

Based in stunning Perthshire, Scotland, near Crieff 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 this bright and bold Scottish 'spongeware' table/potato bowl hand-painted circa 1880-1900. - Large Persian rose pattern*, stylised floral design hand-painted. - Pink / red and dark blue flowerheads with green leaves and dark stems, with double & triple pink/red framing lines to the inside of the bowl, lip/rim circumference and outside the waist of the bowl in triplicate. - No makers mark, attributed to East Scottish, Kirkcaldy pottery from David Methven & Sons Company or Links pottery.  The pattern has some similarities to 'Airlie Ware' D.M. & Sons pattern. - The bowl is in good condition with age-related wear to the bowl but in good solid shape. The Links or Kirkcaldy pottery tended to copy successful ranges (such as Wemyss ware) of other manufacturers and achieved very high output, much of which went for export to the Empire in the Victorian era from 1835-1935. Creamware was produced from the mid-nineteenth century, and was usually printed or painted.  The Links or The Kirkcaldy Pottery for most of its existence is associated with the Methven family of David Methven & Sons.  Ref: Kelly, H.E., Dorothy, A.A. & Kowalsky, D.E.
