Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Busy times here at Wurzeltod HQ. Following the correlative rules of the Teutonic laws of multi-disciplinary hyperefficiency, I decided to go for changes on all fronts, in housing, career and relationship because if I’m heading for a nervous breakdown it’d better come now and with a certain degree of gravitas and heroism. 

Anyhow, so it seems I totally forgot to go to Spitalfields yesterday, so here are (some of) the findings from the previous week: 

- Carved Black Foresty stag head shelf

- Broken and burnt doll’s head with intact eye mechanism (woohoo!)

- Pearlware/creamware plate from around 1810, I reckon (it has the characteristic blueish/greyish shine, so I’m confident it’s pearlware)

- Barr, Flight & Barr plate from pre-1840, I presume, because it seems they stopped production under those initials afterwards, but I know next to nothing about ceramics, so please do enlighten me if I’m wrong. At any rate, it would make my dear friend Ernst Haeckel proud. :)
