Tudor Doll 

English, 1575-1625

Wow! I exclaimed when I saw this. Extremely rare Tudor doll - very few toys were made in this period as children were trained to become adults as soon as possible. Home-made by a non-professional carver - a loving Dad perhaps - with ruffed collar and "tonsure" haircut. Beautifully worn aged surface: the lighter color of the face shows how much the girl loved stroking it.

Hanging Oil Lamp 

French, c.1700

A distinctive and early hanging oil lamp. Well formed, lots of good finishing tool marks and original iron suspension hook. Small drip reservoir underneath. Much more interesting than the tin "betty lamp."

Candlestick 

French, c. 1675

A pretty little candlestick whose charm lies not just in its form, but in its surface: it is beautifully aged, softened by centuries of polishing and with good signs of wear and usage. A lovely little thing.

Serving Jug 

English, 1550-1600

A fat-bellied serving jug, with the fattest of bellies -- larger, heavier and more impressive than most. Cast in two halves with clear join around the middle. The rounded base shows it was not to be set down -- the servant was continuously filling glasses and replenishing the jug from the barrel. Double the capacity of most jugs -- obviously a thirsty household.
