I collect ironstone-especially pitchers. I don't know what my fascination wth pitchers is. At one time, I collected any kind-aluminum, enamel, porcelain, glass...all kinds, all colors. Of course, I've found my true love...WHITE!
Don't you just love the detail? I'm not sure about the floral design. I don't have a green thumb like so many of you, but I do enjoy them-especially on white ironstone:)
I don't really care if they are the real "McCoy" or not. I just love the look that has passed the test of time-some with cracked glaze...some discolored...some slightly imperfect or chipped...it doesn't matter. I'll snag an ironstone bargain anyday!
The bottom is marked "Real.Ironstone.China" by Wm. Adams & Sons England. Can anyone tell me about this?
This is a little creamer that I picked up at the flea market last weekend for $1. I would have paid $5:)
Love, love these crocheted doilies, a find from an estate that we bought out. I worry that the beautiful talent was lost with my granny. She loved color. Of course, I prefer white! As a young adult, I thought she was "tacky." Now, I treasure every piece I inherited-just knowing that those stiff, arthritic hands created such beauty is beyond me! My daughter has tried knitting. Maybe we didn't lose it all!
A lace tablecloth that my mama made-not crocheted, but nonetheless beautiful!
I'll share my newest ironstone pieces in the near future.
