I'm not a serious collector but I do like English porcelain plates and whenever we go there I try and pick up a few for my collection.  They're nothing special, no Minton, no  Worcester, no Derby, just plates that caught my eye.
I love the Victorian ones, like the Ribbon plates and have a special place in the heart for Art Nouveau and Art Deco, no Clarice Cliff.  I love flow blue and soft turquoise, and I'm always on the look-out for yellow ones.
You'll notice a few jugs in the first picture, they're part of another collection.
Can't wait for September so I can collect some more.


  1. You're coming to the UK? What part(s)?

  2. We've rented a cottage in a tiny village between Burford and Lechlade, I think that's Oxfordshire. Can't wait. We're really looking forward to some cooler weather, it was 97 here yesterday and that's one of the cooler days we've had.
