As you well know I have a fondness for china..this has got out of hand in recent years & I have had to have a good sort out….. boxing and storing the best part of my collections in the barn until such a time as I can decide what to do with them.…So this year I have indeed set myself a challenge I will only be buying certain types of china…
J&G Meakin and Arthur Meakin have a special place in my heart so this year I am only going to buy pieces from the following collections
These are my favourites from the collections known as the crofters pattern in the grace & lyric shapes…very stylised 50’s designs with a lovely grey cross hatched back ground.
Maid of Honour
I have fairly good selection of Rock Fern, Summertime & Flamenco but I am very keen to get my mitts on some pieces of Harvest Field, which is a rather pleasant minty green colour.
Also if I were to stumble across some pieces of Wishing Well which has a charming ballerina design & reminds me of a misspent childhood dreaming of tutu’s…(*ahem* we won’t revisit those memories ever), I would be most happy but due to my thrifty meter hanging just above empty this will be a rather big wish…but i always live in hope & am off to one of my favourite haunts this Friday to jolly my search along…..
