Timeless Treasures

I have a fondness for English Staffordshire Ware.
 
One look at those pastoral village scenes, and I'm transported back to my grandmother's kitchen, where her cupboard displayed shelf upon shelf of these timeless treasures.
I can see the kitchen table covered in a freshly-starched embroidered tablecloth, the milk-jug sitting atop, awaiting the first of many pots of tea served throughout the day.
Treasured memories of gentler times........
 
 
 
One of my favorite collections are from the Alfred Meakin "Tintern" series.
I'm drawn to their bucolic scenes from years gone by.

Your pitchers are beautiful. I remember my Mother had a lot of "BLue Willow" pieces when I was growing up. I love the scenes on the different pieces. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

This is such a great collection. If I start going to antique stores again, I bet something like this would purchased. All of them are wonderful pitchers.
