Handsome French Sailor - DGK6536

We don't think he'd go unnoticed at St Tropez but the way Poole Quay has been going lately he may blend in nicely on a busy sunny day. A Gallic looking resin piece of sculpted art measuring 15 cms in height and 9 cms the width of his belly.

Also available as a pair with our Brexit Bather - see below.

Traditional Brexit Bather - DGTK6538

Our traditional Brexit Bather looks like a man with a plan and could be on the beach in Dover looking proudly across to France with his Spanish beach ball and Italian swim suit. Needless to say he is made of Chinese resin and stands proudly at 16 cms.

Also available as a pair with our Handsome French Sailor - see below.

Blue Fluffy Baby Bird - DG55864

When our suppliers reduced the price of these we hastily arranged a board room meeting to discuss why such a unique colourful fun filled item (standing all of 15 cms we may add) could be reduced at such a level for us to pass them on to the end user at 3 for a fiver. Some companies invest in oil, others in property or gold. We're investing in Fiffie the Fluffy Fledgling seagull and we are going to prove the rest wrong. Go on then - press the add to basket tab!

Large Metal Owl - DGMB2

Large metal Owl


Not strictly nautical but then again, we see plenty of owls around the edge of Poole Harbour so no doubt they occasionally swim over the shores.  These chunky large metal and tin owls in bright colours are unusual and have been very popular this year - don't miss the pairs of birds in the same design below.

£14.95 each

 

Large Coloured Bird - DGMB10

To match the owl above we have these beautiful brightly coloured metal and tin birds approximately 6 inches high and 9 inches long and 3 inches wide - fascinating colours and we must say when we photographed these novelty gifts they immediately attracted the attention of a couple of our cats!

Pair of Striped Deck Chairs - DK5119

 

Nautical small deck chairs as ornaments have been popular these last few seasons and we have these separately in turquoise and deeper blue colours but here's one of each in red and blue for £9.95 for those of you undecided (price for two items!) Great little nautical additions at 10 cms in height and 5 cms width.

Cuddly Beach Lady - DG7642

We like her purples and blues, her red hair too. With a lifering thrown over her shoulder, she's ready to take to the waves.

A good 7 inches tall and an impressive 8 inches around her circumference.  Would look particularly fetching on a bakery counter. Lauren's just asked a customer for a description..."cuddly" was the reply. Oh, and she's made made of plastic resin. That's the beach lady, not Lauren.

We also have her twin sister (not shown) who carries a ball instead of a lifering.

Galileo Thermometer

 

Quirky? Cool? Conversation starter, conversation finisher? We have our Galileo thermometers in several sizes and have also introduced the teardrop thermometer too.  

These sealed glass cylinders contain a clear liquid and several  coloured glass vessels of varying density. As Galileo discovered hundreds of years ago, if the density within the vessels differs they bob up and down according to the temperature and the temperature is indicated by the brass tag on the lowest vessel. Well, we think that's the theory.

For those scientifically inclined amongst our customers, we hope we have described the workings of these accurately. Our source of reference was Freddie Mercury's Bohemian Rhapsody where he says Galileo several times in a high pitched voice towards the end of the track so he must have had one of these. We've just downloaded the track on i-tunes and the lyrics don't refer to exactly how his one worked but he does seem quite excited about it.

Galileo thermometers - perfect novelty gifts to accompany "Bohemian Rhapsody" or for those who have not quite saved up enough money for a lava lamp.

Blue Ceramic Turtle

Blue ceramic turtle


Turtles normally live on the coast but are not easy to take pictures of close up. Our mid blue ceramic turtles measure 15 cms (5 inches) in length and with a maximum width of 15 cms are free standing - they stand on their bellies. A very popular line with adults and children alike and a nice addition for a nautically themed nursery!

These are made of resin and will more than grace the shelf next to the sink. Oh and we have a shelf sitting version down below for those of you that don't mind knocking ornaments over!

Large Lady in Swimming Costume

Large Lady in Swimming Costume


The large lady in a swimming costume is traditionally a rather good selling line down here on the Dorset Coast. Our ever so slightly large sitting ladies come in resin with swimsuits in one of two colours. A "tongue in cheek" seaside line and these do of course shape around a shelf, like our sitting fishermen, so can reside anywhere where a drawer doesn't slam to knock them off their perch. The flatness of each derriere secures the perfect shelf sitting position.

Metal Tin VW Camper Van

Metal Tin VW Camper Van

These metal tin VW campervan are quite cool and lovely. They are finished in a pale blue with white markings - in our opinion the best colour and we were offered red, even orange but hold stock entirely in this colour. The detail is great with wheels that actually turn around and a roof rack with surf boards. A great nautical surfy ornament as a gift or to display around the home. These are on the big side, approximately 13 inches long, 5 inches wide and 6 inches high. They come in a nice box and we have to say... are ornaments and not toys!!

Hanging Wooden Seagull Mobile - DGMGWD702

Hanging Wooden Seagull Mobile

Hanging Wooden Seagull Mobile

Hanging Wooden Seagull Mobile

Back by popular demand and also called seagull flappers. Singularly the most difficult wooden animal to film in the wild as real seagulls appear from nowhere, tilt their heads sideways and adopt a breeding posture. We found somewhere quiet for the photo shoot and apologise for the poor quality of these pictures. 3 minutes photographing was long enough.

These wooden seagull mobiles hang on string, pull the string downwards and the wings flap. If you do this outside this movement is guaranteed to attract the attention of any passing gull with time on its hands.

Measures 26 inches from top of the string to base string with the small wooden bobble on it. This is the bit you pull to create flapping affect. Measures 17 inches from hanging part of string to wooden base of seagull. Wingspan is 12 inches and length of seagull is 8 inches. Great to hang from children's bedrooms ceilings as a seaside mobile, but do have string parts so not suitable to children under the age of three.

We supplied these hanging seagull mobiles for ITV's 60 Minute Makeover programme!

Nautical Fridge Magnet
Boat Fridge Magnet

The ubiquitous nautical fridge magnet! We sell these in volume in our shop so it's only fair they have a place on our website. Found in coastal resorts throughout the UK and often over written with the name of the resort the buyer is visiting. These ones are a lot more pleasing to the eye and come in four rustic blue nautical designs. They measure approximately 3 inches in height and 2 inches in width, are made of resin and have a magnet on the back unsurprisingly. Perhaps not a future "cash in the attic" line but the best new design we've seen this year! Some customers have bought these to use as wedding favours.
