Gifts and souvenirs display cabinet
All the kitsch (and "artisan" pottery) you'd expect! The OOAK tiny artisan figurines at top right are by eBay seller elainelaineybear; "gold" mariner figures, maker unknown, US eBay seller judia41; china elephants, bottom left, individual eBay seller; all remaining items from Sue Perkins (ebay seller highlandminis).

I think just New Englanders would know the Fisherman statue-someone from the other coast probably wouldn't have a clue! New England is very fond of putting up statues!

Isn't this site great for finding out information about your dolls' house items and just learning in general?!


I say a resounding"Yes" to that, Zoe!

Here is some trivia-the gold mariner is a replica of the Gloucester fishermen memorial statue-it looks out over the harbor in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It memorializes all those lost at sea from that port-it was the real life setting for the film The Perfect Storm


Thank you, Jane, for the info on this figure. I bought it from a US eBay seller who also lists on eBay.co.uk. There was none of this information in the listing but I'm assuming almost all Americans would know this memorial and wouldn't need it explaining.

Oh yes, you absolutely have to take some quality tat back for the family members who didn't come with you! Looks great.
Great photos, Julie. I don't know how to commend you enough for the excellent research and detail but I quite like Patty's word - "blimy"!
