12 Days of Christmas
To celebrate the official 12 days of Christmas (starting on Christmas Day, not 14th December as many Americans have been led to believe), we’ve made our list, and checked it twice, containing some items which we think will fit in well with the traditional 12 Days of Christmas song. We hope that you like them! Each one is for sale on our eBay store. Merry Christmas everyone!

12 Drummers Drumming
Learn to become a drummer with this 1920s vintage The New Music Educator Textbook.
11 Pipers Piping
Not that kind of pipe, but how about a mid-century green pipe bowl? Put that up your pipe and smoke it, literally.
10 Lords A Leaping
This miniature antique lady portrait Roma silver brooch is sure to have all the lords a leaping!
9 Ladies Dancing
For the lady who loves to dance, here is a Vintage 1945 silver ballroom dancing medal from the Midland Association Teachers of Dancing.
8 Maids A Milking
With 8 maids gathering your milk straight from the cow, you’ll want a lovely Vintage retro Art Deco 1930s Royal Tudor yellow and violet 13-piece coffee/tea set to share it with your friends and family.
7 Swans A Swimming
Well, they’re not swimming, and there are only five swans, but we think that’s pretty close. This is a wonderful piece of jewellery made of 930 Danish Silver by Erik Magnussen.
6 Geese A Laying
We had a great goose brooch pin for this one, but it sold recently, so here are a pair of egg yolk/butterscotch amber link cufflinks as a substitute.
5 Gold Rings
We also just sold the only gold ring that we had listed, a lovely diamond engagement ring, but if you have five gold rings, or maybe even more, this Edwardian red leather travel cash box with a key may be what you’re looking for!
4 Calling Birds
You’ll only need two calling birds with this blue tit condiment set brightening up your dinner table.
3 French Hens
All the French hens love to see a cockerel strutting his stuff, and this 1980s Cloisonne Guilloche enamel brooch pin is a fine piece of jewellery for any occasion.
If you’re into turtle doves, how about this Art Deco green enamel WW1 German peace dove sprung notepad. Perfect for fitting in your handbag or your pocket.
A Partridge in a Pear Tree
The partridge has flown away, and this certainly isn’t a pear tree, but it’s still a nice tree-filled brooch. Maybe the partridges will come flocking to you when you wear it!
If these don’t take your fancy, we have over 1700 other items for sale on our eBay shop.
