The Guinness Collection Continues to Grow

To the left, to the right and directly below the Water Jug are examples of Gresley Pottery items produced by T G Green.  The incredible aspect of this is that I used to ride past this actual pottery between 1972 and 1975 on the way to school never ever knowing that it produced such items for Guinness. The pottery is now long closed but the kiln still stands to this day.

In this picture is my growing collection of Royal Doulton specifically two Miner, a Christmas and a Holiday Toucan with one of the most recent limited editions from Doulton, the Zookeeper on the Elephant.

The Miner Toucan has "Mine's A Guinness" inscribed upon it, the Seaside has "Goodness-on Sea" and the Christmas Toucan  "Guinness is Good for Yule"

Can't resist it but two Ringmaster figurines accompanied by four amazed Sea-lions.

The collection of Guinness condiments grows removing 'glass' space on the bar.

Another recent Royal Doulton issue, the beautiful Penguin studying the Guinness Times - #481 of 950.

At last the complete collection of the miniature Wade figurines from the early 60's.

Almost there - the collection of Guinness issued figurines from the 50's.

Ashtray's, sweet dishes and a little trinket box.

Guinness misc. Thimbles, menu holder and a number of sets of buttons and cuff links.
