Issue 129 - Dec-Jan 2011 - Wining & Dining

If you can’t Beeton... Join them!

Whilst visiting a fair recently, I came across a copy of Mrs. Beeton’s Household Management, not particularly rare, but a copy nonetheless. It set me thinking, wouldn’t it be nice to have Isabella Beeton’s guide to hosting the perfect Christmas party for a change and not Sainsbury’s? Article continues...

How about a corking Christmas?

Are you sitting comfortably around the table? Are the porcelain plates ready to receive generous portions of turkey? Are the knives, forks and glasses polished so they reflect the colours of Christmas; the holly with its berries, and the cranberry glass epergne, overflowing with dates, marshmallows and sugared almonds? But did you remember to open those bottles of St Emilion so they would be just right when poured? You didn’t? Shame on you for not taking care of a small but indispensable piece of equipment with an interesting history! Article continues....

Claret Jug Creatures

Richard Kent owns possibly the largest collection of claret jugs in the world. Over the past decade, he has assembled an exquisite array of nearly 100 silver-and-glass vessels fashioned between 1840 and 1918 by such celebrated designers as Tiffany, Faberge and Christofle

The silver mounted claret jug can trace its origins to the Elizabethan era. In England, the mounted tigerware jug became a standard item in the most fashionable and affluent households. Throughout the Middle Ages, pottery vessels had been the basic utensil for serving wine, with the exception of silver, which was sparingly used by the very wealthiest families. Article continues...

Antiques Centres Gift Guide

I guess by now regular readers will have gathered my utter contempt for buying ‘High Street’. This year, as I have done most years, I’ve bought my family something old. It’s a great feeling to see them unwrap something unusual, seeing that look of bewilderment on their face! There is always a story to tell with an old item – something you don’t ever get with a deodorant set with its free mango scented soap. Can you remember what ‘Uncle Tom’ bought you last year? I rest my case.

All the items featured on these pages are currently available for sale (a week before December). The point is, that with a little imagination, something unusual can be found for most members of the family, the cost is generally cheaper than the High Street and to top it all, you can guarantee you won’t be doubling up with another family member.
