And now for something completely different

A ceramic plaque by Mollie Hillam, mounted on fabric and framed in a silver coloured, metal frame. On the back is an address label for Mollie which is The Pottery, Fulneck Moravian Settlement, Pudsey, Leeds, West Yorkshire (what an interesting address). Sadly I think Mollie is no longer with us and I have not been able to find out anything about her but there is quite a bit of her work on various auction sites. Here is the plaque:

Here is another one of her pieces which I think is rather beautiful.

I only paid £1.99 for this beautiful and delicate little ceramic picture. I think it is probably worth quite a bit more and deserves to be appreciated.

  1. Hi,
    Not sure if you have found out anything more- but Mollie Hillam is the sister of my uncle’s sister. She was a prolific potter and her work was in great demand. She also supplied Librerty of London. Unfortunately Mollie was killed in an horrific accident some years ago.
