Collect it! Magazine – Antiques Jargon Buster

In this month’s issue (September 2009) of the popular Collect it! magazine you’ll notice a new section…Jargon Buster written by the likeable Roland Head.

This section is designed to go through the alphabet, A to Z, each month looking at a different letter and introducing and clearing out any cobwebs on terms used within the antiques and collectables industry.

This month he starts with the letter A, and among the words he looks at is Art Deco – this is where Perfect Pieces is featured. Poole Pottery created some very stylised and Art Deco patterns back in the 1930’s and the bowl pictured is a piece of Poole Pottery from our collection!

As you’ll probably know Collect it! magazine is a monthly magazine featuring everything from new collectables, expert discussions,  letters from readers with puzzling items and often feature articles on antiques and collectables. If you buy the magazine regularly or are thinking of a present for an avid collector then why not consider a subscription? They can often save you money and you’ll receive each magazine as soon as it’s been published – save getting wet when going out to buy it each month!

Note: Collect It! is sadly no longer being published.

Antiques Info Moorcroft Feature

The main ceramics feature in the current (July/August) edition of Antiques Info magazine is the work of Roland Head, who’s the lesser half of Perfect Pieces!

The article focuses mostly on the work of William Moorcroft and the ongoing strength of the top end of the Moorcroft market. The folks at Antiques Info have dug deep into their archives and produced a great set of auction results and pictures of good quality Moorcroft – it’s well worth a look if you’re interested in one of the UK’s most successful and popular potteries (and one that’s still going strong today).

The July/August edition of the magazine is on the newstands now.

PenDelfin Market Feature in Antiques Info Magazine

This month’s Antiques Info magazine includes a feature article on the current state of the PenDelfin market – along with a full three pages of captioned photographs! You may recognise a few of these photographs – they were all provided by Perfect Pieces.

The article itself was written by the other half of Perfect Pieces, Roland Head, and is well worth a read for anyone interested in building a worthwhile collection of PenDelfin figurines.

This issue also has the first of a series of articles about collecting, written by the magazine’s editor, John Ainsley. This makes interesting reading for anyone who is just starting out in the world of antiques, or who is interested in improving the quality and value of their collection.

The PenDelfin article is in the May/June issue of Antiques Info magazine and it’s in newsagents now.
