An interesting dish produced as a souvenir of the Crystal Palace in around 1855. It is made of papier-mâché with a japanned finish, and is printed with an image of the building and gold scroll detailing.
The Crystal Palace was originally built in Hyde Park in 1851 to house the Great Exhibition. After the exhibition had finished, it was dismantled and rebuilt in Sydenham where it reopened in 1854. This souvenir dates to slightly later. One of two water-towers can be seen in the image, but these were not completed until 1855, so it was probably made around this time.
The condition is generally good with some scuffing, scratching and wear to the surface commensurate with its age.

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.
