Old flower design hanging plaque-is it Scandinavian? - T Matthews?

Post by stardust* on January 14th 2016, 3:30 pm

This caught my eye, I'm assuming it's not british just by the design (though I'm almost always wrong!) The underside has no mark but an indentation and marks left from, I think, it being poured into a mould.
I can't find anything the same on searching. I think it was used under a teapot!
Can anyone help?

There have been discussions on these pieces here before although not sure there was a definite identification

but who is this Tim Mathieson? I haven't come across his work

do you have a pic of the signature please Naomi?

He was a suggestion made by Naomi in the EH Matthews thread.
I agree it's very frustrating. I sold mine not knowing !

Clutching at straws.... I wonder of there's any clue in the steam engine being named after the Scottish village of Strathpeffer?

It also says "1862" just behind the funnel. According to the  Wikipedia article on Strathpeffer "The arrival of the railways in Dingwall in 1862 did much to bring more visitors to the town."

I see why everyone is frustrated, apart from the auction of the two plaques (giving the name T Matthews) there really is nothing to find on the internet!...yet

female blue and white ceramic figure no markings

Post by debbie32 on May 28th 2016, 5:03 pm

Does anyone recognise this:





She measures approx 4.25 x 4" and 3/4" deep. There is no glaze on the back and it has a hole for hanging. Any help as always is really appreciated, even if its to tell me to stop buying tat :)

Similar to Dan's figure on here. I think it's by the same person but their identity is still in doubt
