Love it! Ernie seemed to have had all he desired in this world, and that's all a millionaire can have. You can't buy contentment.

The Chinese one on the right might be worth a bit Ozy

The range is exactly like the one we had and I seem to remember the surround being painted as well. Heating, cooking,with the kettle permanently on the boil and a focal point with room for ornaments and photos. It was so welcoming on a cold day playing in the snow!

You could be right, Mick. And I've seen similar oriental stuff on the 'Roadshow: Table-top wares 'of unusual colour and detail' that seem to weigh heavily on the prettiest of things beneath them. And that funny-looking bird that Sandon had dealt with - strewth! Anyway, what had Ernie's 'Baxter-jar' held, I wonder - it certainly doesn't look like beetroot.

I hope you don't mean me or Veronica with "that funny looking bird", young Philip! xxx

Phillip The Chinese jar will probably be full of dust.

I certainly don't Irene! Yourselves A Meissen Kingfisher and a Belleek Kingfisher Vase respectively. Hope your both ok.

You're probably right, Mick. And a priceless jug placed placed high on a shelf is no object for a feather duster - unless the cleaner is a good catcher.

It's almost like 'looking through the keyhole' wondering who lives here. I would have said definitely a bachelor, but not Cliff Richard. Before anybody jumps down my throat it's just a bit of fun...;o)
