Sadia Walsh (1928 - 2009). Sadia was born at Ravenswing, a country home in Mellor, Lancs, in February 1928. The fourth generation of the Cook family, Sadia lived at Ravenswing all her life - and filled it with objects she loved. Cultured, intelligent and well read, Sadia had a lifelong love of the arts, but her great passion was antiques including furniture, Georgian silver and glass, but particularly ceramics.
