Vivian Hall Antiques Club
Members and visitors to the Vivian Hall antiques Club were treated at their last meeting to a lively presentation by John and Rosemary Blythe on “Magic Lanterns”. John and Rosemary not only showed us a variety of lanterns from their collection, but also dressed in period clothes and gave us a typical Victorian Magic Lantern Show which was thoroughly enjoyed by all present.
The guest speaker on Tuesday 2nd April will be Helen Hallesy, who will be giving a talk on “People and historic events depicted on Swansea Pottery 1794 – 1856”
Helen is a native of Pontardawe in the Swansea valley and had been trading from her shop in Swansea since 1984, under the name of Magpie Antiques. Helen no longer runs the shop, but maintains her long standing interest in Welsh ceramics and has published a number of books and articles on varying aspects of the potteries in South Wales.
The club meets at 7pm at the Vivian Hall, Blackpill, Swansea every first Tuesday of the month. Members and visitors are encouraged to bring any items along that might be relevant to the talk. Refreshments are available. For further details please contact David Williamson on 368681.
