Eclectic Finds From Raspberry Mash
The owners of Raspberry Mash, in Manchester, are professional photographers and collectors. Over the years, Dale and Chloe have developed quite a knack for seeking out the quirky, characterful and collectable – they specialise in furniture and homeware as well as collectable toys and movie memorabilia. Items from the Raspberry Mash collection are not only available for purchase, you can hire them for shoots, events and special occasions too.
The first fantastic vintage find to catch my eye in the Raspberry Mash online emporium was this wonderful old industrial stamp. Thought to date from the first half of the 20th century, it would originally have been used to stamp the sizes onto products. I think it would make a smart paperweight, but you could also buy ink and get creative with it too!

Vintage lighting at Raspberry Mash includes this original General Electric industrial pendant light in smart hunter green. The GECo stamp is visible on the side of the pendant shade and the slight patina and small patches of rust enhance the light’s character.

Raspberry Mash also have several smart vintage industrial storage solutions, including this set of metal drawers. At 145cm in height and with 16 spacious drawers, this cabinet offers plenty of storage space and would be useful in any room.

This red metal ammunition box dates from the Second World War and the dents, scratches and rust are a reminder of its previous life. Today, it will make a characterful storage box for children’s toys, DVDs and much more.

I love this vintage Oxo tin – it would look great on the old school desk in my study.
