The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta is being celebrated throughout Salisbury. There is a new visitor experience in the Cathedral and the Trussell Trust have spread life sized individually decorated barons throughout the city which will be auctioned off on 1st October to raise funds. Casa Fina is one of several outlets where you can buy mini barons which can be left plain or decorated with your own design and £1 from each baron will go to the Trussell Trust.
The minis are selling fast, email using the link at the bottom of the page or phone to reserve one in the next delivery.
The mini barons can be painted at home or you can go to 'Splash of Colour' to paint and glaze your barons for £3.50.
Bring your painted barons to Casa Fina from 24-30 August and enter our Salisbury Contemporary Craft & Heritage Festival competition. If you could email us first to let us know that your child would like to enter that would be great.
All the barons will be displayed in our window from 31 August to 7 September and there will be 3 winners (aged under 8, 8-12, 13-18). Each will win a Magna Carta mug and a £15 Splash of Colour voucher and the overall winner will receive a family ticket to the Festival on 5 & 6 September.
These spongeware mugs have been made exclusively for Casa Fina in Stoke on Trent, the home of British pottery. They cost £11.95 or £20 together with a mini baron.

Vintage notes -
The Ercol furniture company was set up in 1920 by Lucian Ercolani. He perfected the steam bending of wood which enabled him to mass produce furniture made from English elm. In 1947 the first Windsor chair was produced and Ercol furniture was exhibited at the 1951 Festival of Britain. Ercolani believed in well designed furniture and the fact that mid-century modern style and Ercol furniture are still so popular is a testament to his passion.
Our breakfast table is model #396 and the chairs are stick back Windsors.
