A Look At Things British

The Queens Diamond Jubilee has me thinking of things that are British.  I would love to go to a car boot sale or open market for antiques in England.  To see that much history in one spot.  There will be a few things in this blog I've put in before mixed in with new stuff.

This collage of the Queen is a picture of a tea towel from the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, A paperweight of the Queen that I have in my collection and a red tin put out by OXO to celebrate Queen Elizabeth 2nd's Coronation.

This bowl was my grandmothers and always kept in a cabinet.  It was only recently I realized it was a piece of Spode it's called Spode's Jewel and it's made in England.

This plate is a piece of Carlton Ware which was made in England.

This collage has a platter that is Creampetal made by Grindley which was made in England.  The salt and pepper shakers are Blue Nordic by J and G Meakin made in England.  The book on Clarice Cliff who was an industrial artist in the potteries of England from 1922 to 1963 is a good introduction to her work.  I love her way out there designs.

  1. Love seeing the royal souvenirs on the various Jubilee posts this week... I had to buy a Jubilee magnet at Walmart last week - just so I would have something.....

  2. Lovely Royal Souvenirs. I watched the barge/boats twice yesterday, loved the close-ups of the Royals.

  3. Charming things, I think I will look at my pieces a little closer,


Look forward to your kind comments.
