Andy's Cider & Christmas Coasters & Collectables

I had a couple of pieces of Motto Ware that I'd picked up and then I went to The Malvern Flea in December 2018. Never been before but it was as big as I'd imagined, and I'm told that the summer events are even  bigger! With nine of them throughout the year plenty of opportunity to go again. While at the Flea I bought a few things but then came across a stall with two wicker 'dog' baskets full of pieces of Motto Ware. Around 15 or 16 pieces in total and a couple had nibbles and the odd chip out of them, but the majority seemed undamaged. The price of £45 the lot was tempting but I had to consider if I wanted such a large number of things in an area that I'd previously not really looked at. In the end I got them for £40 and took the chance. I think that there was a dozen perfect pieces with four sporting a little bit of damage, not big damage but I've done some restoration to the pieces to make them display a bit better, in reality the damage was not really very visible, but I knew it was there. I've added a few pieces since so I suppose I'm now a Motto Ware collector, at least for the time being...
