That night was months ago and since then, all this stuff has been sitting in my garage.
Bins and boxes of it.
No markings on the bottom.
I think the design is maybe a bird?
Chipped plate and some sort of soap dish?
Ginger jar with no lid.
Copper sauce pan and casserole.
LOVE these plates.
They are in perfect condition.
This is the marking on the back of each one.
English ironstone bowl.
Not that old because it says dishwasher safe.
These 7 plates are Royal Copenhagen Denmark.
Each has the date of the year it was made.
They all have the same marking…except the title of the plate is of course different.
It’s in English and Danish perhaps?
This darling little set of nesting bowls.
No markings but who cares?
I’ve saved the best for last.
An English ironstone platter.
No chips and just a little bit of crazing.
The ceramic art of Great Britain
By Llewellynn Frederick William Jewitt
This platter dates from between 1866 and 1876.
It was manufactured at a pottery in Stoke-On-Trent in England.
This area is home to many potteries including Royal Stafford.
I couldn’t find a value on this particular platter.
Like most heirlooms, it’s monetary value is secondary to it’s personal value.
So…here’s the question.
If this is the left over stuff,
doesn’t it make you wonder about the good stuff?
Thanks for stopping by…
