WELSH BLANKETS ARE OUR SPECIALITY.... HOWEVER........? posted 2014-04-01 12:19:45

 

We have been buying and selling Welsh Blankets for a number of years  and we are still mystified with several unanswered questions. As there is limited information about these beautiful items it seems that these blankets have become woven into folklore.

Questions.. Who designed these amazing patterns?

Why are today's Welsh Blankets made without border patterns?

Why did the border patterns go out of fashion in the 1960's?

Why are the North Wales patterns so vastly different from the South and Mid Wales ?

Why were swaddling  blankets only made in Mid Wales? Why not other regions?

Why have no definitive books been written on Welsh Blankets which attribute their provenance to the Principality?

 

These are just a few of the questions. There are many more.

Please e mail us with your suggestions and answers. Thank you. Mike King.

This stunning Credenza..... posted 2014-03-28 22:03:21

Antique Victorian Walnut Credenza          This stunning Victorian Walnut Credenza was added to our stock this morning . It is in really pristine condition and would grace any drawing ,study , or living room. Although it is priced at £1250 we consider that this is a modest investment  for a beautiful craftsman made item. Perhaps ten years previous this item would have commanded a price in excess of £2000.

Please examine the top quality cross banding and the ormolu mounts and beading.All are complete without damage . This item is nestling in our antique showroom on the first floor

A viewing is recomended .

PERRY HIGGINS DOES NOT EXIST.. posted 2014-03-28 21:34:20

PERRY  HIGGINS  DOES  NOT  EXIST !!!

 

POSTED  BY  THE  SOLE  PROPRIETOR  MICK  KING

 

 

Many times during the course of business hours customers are frequently asking to speak to "Perry" and are politely told that "Perry" does not exist.

 

The business trading name "Perry  Higgins  Antiques" evolved from the combination of two mothers' maiden names. My mother's maiden name was Higgins.

My ex partner left this business some 6 years ago and her mother's maiden name was Perry.

Hence the lovely business trading name  "Perry Higgins Antiques"

Please do not ask for Perry when you come to my shop!
