God Save the King Flags found in Storage


Take a look at this fantastic original flag from the George the VI coronation . King of the British Empire, last King of Ireland and Last Emperor of India. Most may recognise the historical significance of this flag from the well know movie "The Kings Speech" Great for display, retail or home use. Great piece of history.

Save the Wedgwood Collection for the nation!!!!!

Save the Wedgwood Collection for the nation!!!
Since falling into administration Wedgwood's collection of over 8000 items has been at risk of auction and would undoubtedly be dispersed over the world. The art fund charity has agreed a purchase price of £15.75m
And will give the collection to the V&A who intern will lend the collection to the Wedgwood museum in Staffordshire. The art fund has raised most of the amount already, but still need £2.65m and are now looking to the public to secure the collection before the deadline of November 30th. A charitable trust has pledged to match the first £500,000 raised. I realise that this sort of charity is not of high priority for most, but we should not be quick to allow our heritage to disappear in this manner. You can donate at
www.artfund.org or give £10 by texting WEDGWOOD to 70800

Art Fund - The national fundraising charity for art
The Art Fund helps museums and galleries to buy and show great works of art for everyone to enjoy.
