A few years ago I found a beautiful Johnson Brothers
plate called Windsor Ware. I later found 2 more and then one and eventually I found a set of six. Now I had 10 plates. The fruit and floral motif on the plates is lovely as it includes a rose and a chrysanthemum.
I go out antiquing here and there across our state so over time I found 3 cups and saucers that matched the plates. Today I found 7 more to go with the 3, bringing the total to 10 of those. Of course these will be lovely for fall.
The teapot below has lots of crazing but I
as that just means it was loved.
Autumn officially begins September 23 and who would believe how soon that is coming.
I can't even remember where I found the platter below:
I am a mix and match person so a couple of cottage teapots work great for me. This one is an Arthur Wood & Sons and the one above with the crazing is a Sadler. For anyone who doesn't know and is curious crazing just means tiny innocent cracks all over often seen on used and loved teapots and cups and saucers.
