Just two recent findings from Spitalfields Market. 

Yes, those are doll-sized ice skates and yes, that’s an original Cyprane® inhaler.

A small part of today’s Spitalfields finds. I particularly like my Perspex Jesus®. He’s more 80s and arty than thou cause his crucifix is made of perspex and yours isn’t. Amen. Also, Dave Gahan and I are currently writing him his very own theme tune, yo.

Not pictured is one of the VILEST purchases I’ve ever made: A porcelain figurine of a child mermaid looking dangerously constipated. Its gruesome stare destroyed the camera so you just have to trust me that it’s so horrific you really don’t want to see it.

Shocking! I completely forgot to bore you all with my Spitalfields update last week. So here’s two weeks worth of exploits (I’m on a strict budget…):
- Mechanical monkey of doom
- Two very beautiful newbies in the doll family (I lovingly call the head “Pol Pot Jr.”)
- An always useful hand clip
- A “pot” box to go with my “snuff” box.
YAY!

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. :)

Spitalfields Treasures, May 20, 2010: 
It’s obvious that the doll and/or the chaps in the painting will try to kill me each and every night from now on, but the hell with it - it was all worth it! :)

This is strikingly familiar (and is tangentially giving me a demented urge to cultivate myself an ensemble exactly thus to wear for a delightful day of pedagogically discussing post-colonialism with 80s-fashion-reviving 18 year-olds who ask whimical questions about whether vagina dentata is real), but I can’t quite place it. …Anyone?
