A Canvey Souvenir.
The 1621 Dutch Cottage.
This little porcelain model of the Dutch Cottage was donated to the Castle Point Transport Museum by 2 members of the Shoebury Society on their recent visit to the museum.
The base of it is stamped showing W&R Stoke on Trent Carlton China. The cottage resembles the one which is a museum so it looks like it’s been incorrectly dated as 1621 instead of 1618. It stands approximately 8 cms high by 8 cms across the widest part of the roof.
Soon it will join 3 other similar models in one of the Bus Museum’s display cabinets.
