£22.50 each

 

 

Three Fish on a Dish - DGS7287

Something else for the kitchen… measures 28 cms by 19 cms by 2 cms. Finished in decal enamel with a mango wood base. Mango wood… the trees in Buddhist culture symbolize happiness and good fortune so expect some luck and no salmonella when eating the fruits of the sea from this beautiful object. This is of course, a joke and not medical or culinary advice.

£22.50 each

 

 

Mackerel Nut Mango Wood Bowl - DGS7281

Decal enamelled mango mackerel nut bowl measuring 10 cms wide and 7 cms high, weighing 140 grammes. Beautiful mango wood is best rubbed with olive or sunflower oil to maintain its integrity.

£9.95 each

 

 

Cromer Crab Mango Wooden Bowl - DGS7278

Another hip nautical crab on a mango wood base and making interesting and useful decoration for the seaside kitchen – that was a mouthful – the finish is decal enamel and best kept clean with a damp cloth. Measures 20 cms in diameter and 10 cms high, made of sustainable mango wood – we believe that mango wood could be more sustainable than bamboo but don’t quote us.

£19.95 each

 

 

Octopus Mango Wood Nut Bowl - DGS6843

Not necessarily for the use of nuts exclusively. We have an excellent new range of sustainable mango wood culinary plates, trays, bowls and nut dishes. 10 cms by 10 cms by 7 cms in height for these beautifully designed octopus bowls. The surround and base is mango – these trees can reach up to 130 feet in 20 years, that’s taller and faster than our son William. The mango tree was domesticated over 4000 years ago but we haven’t used any wood that old. A very sustainable wood. The bowls are decal enamelled and the usual superior finish our customers expect from Dorset Gifts.

£9.95 each

Ceramic Fish Plate - DGS5666

Ceramic Fish Platter

An interesting idea, our fish plates in four dishes can measure 31 cms by 11 cms but you could always stretch them out a little. These are ceramic and the picture was our 3rd attempt to get them in the right sequence. We are looking at these ceramic fish platters and thinking tapas, hors d’oeuvre, allergies ... they’re going to work.

£9.95 each

Dorset Tea Caddy - DGDORSTEA


We sell lots of these in our shop alongside all the nauticalia, country fudge, seaside essentials and of course ice cream.

£4.95 each

 

Dorset Knob Tin - DGMOORESKN


It’s been on our mind for more than a decade and in the past we have sold hampers of Dorset products. We are selling a few of our classic food items but only if they come in a reusable tin and something we think those nautically minded might enjoy as an accompaniment on their or someonelse’s boat.  Moores Dorset Knob Biscuits are usually accompanied with a wry smile, laughter or a blush when purchasing in our shop. They do sell very well.  They do what is says on the tin — “Superior double baked savoury biscuits, made to the original Moores family recipe in the heart of Dorset and enjoyed throughout the world”. Moores have been established since 1880, that’s more than a hundred years longer than us but on to the biscuits – originally made from dough left over from a mornings bread production – most buyers now enjoy these with some mature cheese and back in the day they were eaten with sugar and hot tea poured on to them. 400 grammes in weight and the average weight of each knob is 10 grammes. That’s the biscuits done but what a superb tin!!! Something to keep in the kitchen for many years to come. Approx 20 cms high and 15 cms wide/deep.

£13.50 each

 

Ceramic Pauline the Pink Flamingo - DGQT5683


A pink ceramic flamingo measuring 26 cms in height and we've never had a flamingo on our website - certainly not in ceramic pink.  Great detail and a cool look to remind you of Africa or the Discovery Chanel.

£11.95 each

 

Ceramic Starfish Bowl - DG5662


Another winner from this line of ceramic tableware which includes the fish, ammonite and seahorse plate.  Nice sized turquoise bowl  which measures  20 cms by 7 cms. Plenty of room for a big bowl of corn flakes!

Ceramic Sidney the Stork - DG5682


Here we have Sidney, we were going to call him Margarine,  the ceramic stork and he's a beauty - 27 cms in height and a photogenic long legged bird! Light ceramic with metal legs, we sold the one in the picture two minutes after taking the picture and putting him on the shelf  here in our shop.

£14.95 each

 

Ceramic Turquoise Fish Plate - DG5658


And to compliment the ammonite and seahorse ceramic plates we had to introduce a fish. Not sure what type of fish it is. These items have been imported from China  (china from China) so probably a fish that frequents the Bohai Sea. Measurements will be helpful (20 cms by 13 cms).

£5.95 each

 

Ammonite Plate - DG5656


We thought about putting a few prawns or a slab of smoked trout on this beautiful ammonite nautical ceramic item ( for you to get a sense of scale  of course ) but it got messy. Ceramic, part of a nautically themed range and measuring  20 cms by 17 cms.  Our one and only range of sea themed tableware delivered to your door and hopefully intact.

£10.95 each

 

Turquoise Seahorse Ceramic Plate - DG5655


Beautiful and measures 25 cms by 13 cms - you could get more than a starter on this! Made in ceramic and excellent nautical tableware - the picture's not great as it's raining where we usually take photographs so may end up being better than expected!

£5.95 each

Ceramic Two Beach Hut Planter - DG5653


The long awaited ceramic seaside planter in beach hut effect. One of our favourites this year  and measuring approximately 19 cms in width and 14 cms in height. In pastel colours and although a planter we are expecting to be some other creative uses for these coastal ornaments.

Ceramic Beachside House Lantern - DG5654


Another chunky ceramic house with a handle ( measurements exclude the handle ). It's definitely a house and definitely looks great alongside the chunky ceramic cottage.

Lovely nautical ceramics and one of our chunkiest is the ceramic seaside cottage with a handle you can use to move it and plenty of room for tea lights or a candle.  Lots of windows for the flickering lights.  22 cms high and 10 cms wide and deep. A nice coastal ornament.

Ship Faced Tumbler - DG5877


We have a range of these in our humble shop on Poole Quay but this for some reason is a constant best seller - we are sure the nautical play on words helps. These hold an impressive 235ml so present the opportunity to add plenty more rum  from the bottle! A funny nautical gift.

Beach Hut Milk Jug - DG52517


We think a lot of milky tea gets drunk in beach huts up and down the coast. Our selling agents say customers like gifts that are useful and practical these days, gifts that add value. And so the beach hut milk jug at 10 cms was born. More tea shipmate?

£6.95 each

 

A Pair of Nautical Egg Cups - DGLP92442

Silver Coloured Metal Starfish Trivet - DG770

Starfish kitchen trivet


These metal starfish kitchen trivets will work wonderfully for those piping hot seafood dishes! No need to ruin the oak any more and we think 3 or 4 starfish trivets scattered around the table increase  the effect. The starfish trivets also look the nautical part on their own, but the three little rubber bungs underneath mean that this starfish is doubling up as a Timothy trivet. The metal silver coloured starfish kitchen trivet is a nice piece of nautical kitchenware.

£24.95 each

 

Round Fish Trivet - DG1975

Round Fish trivet


This round fish trivet would grace any kitchen and save your surfaces from being damaged by hot saucepans. Although it features a fish motif, don't feel that its use should be limited to fish dishes.

£14.95 each

 

Shoal Fish Trivet - DG1977

Shoal of Fish design kitchen trivet


This attractive trivet with a shoal of fish design would look great on any kitchen counter and will protect your surfaces against heat damage.

It wouldn't be much help if you directed a blow torch at your kitchen counter, although it might leave a nice burnt stencil design of a shoal of fish on your worktop. We're just musing here - don't try this at home. Anyway, back to business, this shoal of fish trivet makes a nice piece of nautical kitcheware for your kitchen.
