Not really, but I felt the need for some uplifting colours today. Not only has Britain gone a little bit crazy over the events of the past few days, the weather today is truly horrendous. Oddly though, it might be this rain that dampens down the rioting for today so fingers crossed that for once we might be grateful for the awful British weather.
Luckily for me, I had some pictures that Aidan had prepared earlier:
When you look at the colour of these pots, you can well imagine how the 1960s must have looked. At the moment, I think most people would wish we were harking back to the ’60s, rather than this ’80s re-run that Britain appears to have turned into…

always dangerious harking back to the past. Decades are quickly romanticised in retrospect. Although the 1960s are quite fashionable now they were also the decade of the Moors murderers, Peter Sutcliffe’s first acts and simmering racial tensions…. not to mention the beginnings of serious industrial action and people building fall-out shelters in their back gardens ready for nuclear apocalypse. Mr kill joy today!
Whilst you are perfectly correct Matthew, can we just pretend that it was all orange, flower power and happiness? I’m sure every decade has its memorable highs and lows. Shame though. Would be nice if things could be hunky-dory for a while.
Hi, I was wondering if you knew how to value Spara Keramik pieces?
I just bought a teracotta roaster with original box and haven’t been able to find anything about it anywhere.
Appreciate anything you can tell me!
