    Aquitaine Is What It IS! But NEVER BORED!

    After NEARLY having a heart attack when my computer screen said I was OUTBID while my screen was showing I was the HIGH BIDDER, and had been constantly refreshing my screen so I didn't lose what I wanted with an ONLINE auction....end result was I DID win!! But I kept getting messages that I had to increase my bid, etc, etc, etc.....I was up to $100....but they said (eventually) that I won it at $86.00!!! Oy Vei!!!! So It's 2 items, but I was only after the calendar with the Clipper Ship "Flying Cloud" on one side!!! I have an older small pitcher with same on it and another sea chest with same carved into the front of it (although I AM dubious as to the age of the carving!!) Nonetheless, I WANTED that calendar....AND GOT IT!!!! HOWEVER, it came with another tile that I'm NOT interested in and know nothing about.....ERGO, here I am seeking help from my knowledgeable friends!!!! First a pic of both, then the tile that someone made into a trivet.....it seems to be full of cracks....says on the back "MINTONS CHINA WORKS, STOKE ON TRENT". Anything you can tell me about it will be most helpful!! IS THE SCENE FAMILIAR TO ANYONE???? IS it worth ANYTHING in it's condition?? AS ALWAYS, MANY THANKS for any and all help!!!! BTW, I do have closer-ups of the trivet/tile if needed. I don't have these in hand yet....probably later in the week!!

    THE CALENDAR!!! Sorry!!!!
    I know this because I have a similar calendar from my Mom's birth year! (but NOT the Flying Cloud!)

    If you do Worthpoint, here is another that sold in 2005. Kind of along time ago for an actual price comparison though. They don't mention Wedgwood in the listing so I wonder if they ever removed it from the frame. I don't know and am just guessing that Minton made the tile and Wedgwood the image. Someone may know.

    Sailing history is big ATM did you buy the Flying Cloud calendar for that reason?

    If it's Minton, it's Minton and they decorated it. I've no clue why anyone would say Wedgwood. They were sold as trivets or hanging pieces. Your image looks like one of those Italianate follies.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The one on Worthpoint was also a trivet. Maybe that is the original form as it was sold.
