A slightly less common example of decoration on a toilet roll.

Tile - exactly as Celtic Fan's (yellow 1979) except it's got a date mark for 1973 on the back. A friend mentioned he also had one dated 1972.

Celtic Newlyn jug

Post by vanmann on Wed Sep 17, 2014 12:07 pm

Am I right in thinking that this 25 cms tall jug is from Celtic Newlyn and if so what sort of date would it be? Thanks for any suggestions, John

Dear ALL, this is news I really didn't want to breaking, but -
I have just heard the very sad news that Maggi passed away on 9th January 2014, aged 78.

The only mention I can find is this obituary from Canada
http://www.lifenews.ca/announcement/4334702-fisher-maggie-nee-smyth

I've also spoken to a an ebayer, who kindly confirmed that her friend had attended the funeral, which was well attended.

This news has come as such a shock, as she seemed so full of life when I spoke to her last year and 78 is relatively young these days.

I'm sure you will all join me in offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends.

R.I.P. Maggi, May 28th 1935 - January 9th 2014

Celtic Newlin Horse

I quite like the straw coloured Medallion decoration on this horse as it brings out the sculptural form.

There is just no Celtic (decent or not) at fairs etc. So when this came up on ebay I thought it was a good buy. I probably paid too much for it. It's got a mark for 74 on it. Not seen this fish design on a tile before. It had green sticky backed felt on the back that peels back to reveal the gold label. Hopefully we will see more designs on tiles in the future?

Jerry, here it is compared to the other blue tile I posted earlier. Both unmarked blanks. Both have the green backing applied, gold label and are simply marked MADE IN - ENGLAND across the centre. I'm no tile expert, but I think the bottom number is the year and the rows of dots above the month, so they can track faulty batches. Of course there is no guarantee that if it's marked 77 that is was used then it could have stood in some warehouse for a few years before it was used. But this fish tile was not before 74 (probably?) - unless anyone knows more?

They may have got them from the local DIY, with felt on, they were maybe sold
as teapot stands to go with the teapots.

BTW great fish design!

I like that pic' and like how the lovely wood colour and vibrant green background reflect and enhance the beauty of the form of your lovely horse.

After many years of waiting - seeing them sell for crazy money.
I've finally acquired a set of 5 'Bill Fisher' Singers, for a good price. There is one other figure that matches this set, which I've only ever seen one example of.


Along with the others I've had for a long time, I've quite a good quire now.


I can also confirm my suspicion that one lot is a reworking of the other.
Before getting these latest 'Monk' singers, I thought they may be the reworked figures.
But I am now fairly certain, that they are the original ones.
My second set look to be the adjusted ones. With hats, bow ties and moustaches added, and stripes gouged into the coats. Whether this was a one off set or a 'limited edition' I've no idea - But I've not seen another set.

I do, but I don't have rights to it - just one I copied of ebay. So I can't really post it.

But it's about the height of the 3 middle ones. Long fat face (noticeably fat face/neck) and hands folded/clasping each other in front of him.
The only one I've ever seen, was on ebay in December 2010.

No idea why it should be so uncommon, when the others I've seen at least 5 sets of.

Edit - I've found a link to a tiny pic with it in

I think the plate is in fact a tray for a tea/coffee/lemonade set.

OK - saw some posted earlier in the thread. The clay is very light - feels brittle and fragile. I really would not like to put weight on it, the slightest crack and......disaster!

Yes Celtic is like that, but I think that's why it's ribbed, to make it a bit stronger.
