Carlton Ware By Helen Martin
Carlton Ware from Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England has long been a source of collectors excitement. Whether you yearn for something from the Art Deco period with the fantastic high glaze lightning flashes, stylised flowers or Egyptianesque motifs or from the more affordable saladware range with its dainty embossed flowers or fruit. You may even look for the quirky feet ware from the seventies or those elongated coffee sets in the bright bright colours of the same period Carlton Ware is a force to be reckoned with.
Tables Past and Present By Marni Andrews
The next time you pound on a table to make your point or are told to take your elbows off a table for the sake of good manners, pause for a moment to respectfully consider that table. It may be constructed of the latest modern plastic or it could be a fine heritage piece crafted two centuries ago. Either way, the table we take for granted is as necessary a piece of furniture as any you will find. My mother would agree wholeheartedly with that. In her living room alone, she has eight tables.
It would be hard to imagine life without the table. We use it to eat, to entertain, to hold lamps and to display objects. Imagine the immense stacks of things that would surround us without the trusty table. It is not surprising, then, that its history dates back as far as anything that survives today.

The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca ColaŽ and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
Ice Spearfishing Decoys Joe Fossey
Recent historical interest, influenced primarily by Sporting Collectors, Antique Dealers and Interior Decorating trends has sparked a revival in the reproduction and collecting of wooden pioneer Ice Spear fishing decoys. They are without doubt, a truly unique North American folk art subject. Their sizes range from a tiny 1 inch minnow length to a massive 50 inch Sturgeon replica used to determine the minimum legal length spearing size.
Fish Decoys were used by native and early North American ice fishermen to lure food fish within reach of their spears. The decoys were all hand made, primitive by design and function due to then limited education, lack of regional communication and the general absence of quality wood working tools that are commonly available today. There are considerable differences in primary design and painting colours, which is influenced by various regions involved and the species needs of the original carvers.
