An attractive and substantial bronze wall plaque decorated with a design of the 'Three Hares'. This is a circular motif that appears at sacred sites across the world, from the Far East to England and across Europe. The symbol shows three hares chasing each other in a circle. It has a threefold rotational symmetry, the hares having only three ears between them, but whichever way it is viewed each hare has two ears. It is believed to be either a symbol of fertility or of the Holy Trinity.

This example is from Germany and is based on a famous window in Paderborn Cathedral. In the middle are the relief moulded hares. Round the rim is a motto in German that translates roughly as "Three hares and three ears, but each hare has two". There is a maker's mark to the back, along with a loop for ease of hanging. It dates to the mid to late 20th century and weighs over 2.9kg.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
