I Love White Lace and Ironstone Pitchers

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 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.
