Is gap a collectable? (but then he wasn't made in germany) ! :lol:

I have a little vase about here somewhere...with the old warrenpoint crest on it (as seen on the bandstand)....I think it is only a very common tourist piece but nice on all the same...must go and 'hoke' it out now !

This little teapot is only three inches high. It was given to me when I was seven years old by one of the Misses. Crawfords on the Rath Road. The picture on the front was taken before the baths existed, so I would think 'the gap' would be very close in guessing it's age. He is also correct in that on the bottom of the teapot there is a stamp saying Made in Germany. You truly are a mine of information GAP. :D

Was Miss Crawford .s brother or father a doctor and served in the navy i do know there was some sort of connection with one or the other I remember Miss Crawford and i think she had a sister as well . Any art work done on the teapots would have been done in Ireland and not were the pot was made.

From what I remember Northbrook, The Misses Crawfords father was principal of Clontifleece school at one stage.
Not sure about the Navy connection though.
The sisters lived in a completely different age, when you went into their house (now John & Eileen Annett's) it was like walking into the last century. Everything was just as it had been when their father was alive. I Never knew their first names, but my Dad told me in later years that one of them had always been a very generous person while the other didn't like to give anything away. As a result of this, when things were given away by the generous sister, the other one would eventually notice these items missing and enquire where they had gone to. The first sister would pacify the other by telling her that the fairies must have needed them, so there was no point in questioning the disappearance any further. This explanation was fully accepted by the sister.

A lovely view from the Bridle path.
That's a nice one Art, doesn't matter about the lid........it's the sentimental value that's important.
Nice to meet up with you when you were over....take care.
