Fabulous Ceramic Of A Large Dewhurst's Sylko Cotton Reel - Vintage 1980 So Rare:
FABULOUS PIECE OF VINTAGE BRANDED CERAMIC IN the SHAPE OF A COTTON REEL FOR DEHWHURST’S SYLKO COTTON REELS FROM 1980 – VERY Rare, SOUGHT AFTER AND HIGHLY COLLECTABLE!
A really funky piece of vintage branded ceramic - in this case for the world famous Sylko cotton reels. It is a large reproduction of one of their cotton reels in a pretty mint green colour. The top has the well-known Dewhurst’s Sylko label used on their cotton reels. It lifts off to reveal another inlaid white ceramic tray, which also lifts out.
HISTORY: This was produced in 1980 by the Silver Crane Company, in association with partners, Hobbs Welch. On their website, the Silver Crane Company describe how they had their beginnings in the late 1970s and began by making “fun” ceramics by Britain’s best potters. This ceramic cotton reel is an example of their work from this era – a branded piece which is highly collectable and sought after.
MEASUREMENTS: The cotton reel is 14cm (5.5 inches) in height and 38cm (15 inches) in diameter around the middle. It weighs about 870g.
The reel is marked on the inside of the top lid for Hobbs Welch and The Silver Crane Company in 1980. Please see the photo for details.
In absolutely fabulous condition – like new! Hard to believe it is over 30 years old. Could do with a clean to bring it up sparkling!
A wonderful piece of vintage, branded ceramic that is fun, fun, fun! Lovely to look at - these pieces are extremely rare and highly collectable. Very unusual - ideal for collectors and as a gift for that special seamstress in your life!
