  • Welsh Souvenir Door Knocker for Jenny Jones
    A tiny souvenir brass Internal Door Knocker depicting JENNY JONES and measuring just 3" X 1". ...dates to early 1900's. Jenny Jones was the famous subject of a song ‘Jenny Jones, or the Maid of Llangollen’ with words by the English comedian Charles (Charlie) Mathews (1776 – 1835) and music by John Parry (Bardd Alaw, 1776-1851). The melody was known in Wales by the name ‘Cader Idris’ and was printed in ‘Parry’s Welsh melodies’. The song tells of the love that Edward Morgan, a sailor, had for her and how he had travelled the world and seen many famous people, but wished to return to Llangollen and make Jenny Jones, Jenny Morgan. Jenny Jones, normally with her milk can, was depicted in many prints, brass bells, china and other souvenirs. It is said that the original Jenny Jones was a dairy maid of Pont Bleiddyn near Mold in North Wales..

  • Early Georgian Cast Steel Sugar Snips / Cutters
    A lovely clean set of early Georgian period Sugar Cutters. I found these in Devon on a recent trip to England.... they measure 7 3/4" in length. They have been burnished prior to my obtaining them. In the 1700's, sugar was bought in huge conical loaves weighing as much as 18lbs, although small loaves of about 3lbs were more common for domestic use. In order to prepare the sugar for use, lumps were broken off the loaves and then cut into smaller pieces using the implements like these sharp-bladed sugar nips,.These were a common sight in kitchens wherever sugar was used...some were mounted on stands and others were hand implements like this pair. None of this process was ever seen outside the kitchen, however. Only when the sugar was broken down into manageable pieces was it served in highly decorative and delicate sugar bowls, fashioned in either silver or porcelain in designs that matched the other objects on the tea tray. Sugar tongs were also evolving from the scissor type to sprung tong types and became highly decorative items in Sterling Silver and later in EPNS plate.
