The Thursday Three

DSC03076I am not an expert on ceramics, too much out there and too many collectors to compete with, but if I see a piece with great shape or colours at a bargain basement price, well it’s tempting.

Like my antique and vintage linens though, I do like pieces to be practical as well as decorative – “beautiful and useful” like Mr Morris said.

This 1894 milk jug and sugar bowl will definitely be on the breakfast and tea table, and the large jug would be perfect for milk or home made lemonade or ginger beer etc. Thick enough to keep wine cool too….???????????????????????????????
