The way you make me feel ….

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” said Juliet in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It doesn’t matter what it’s called … it’s more about what it is. And so it is, with this piece that I’m struggling to name… the title would never convey for me what it means or what it feels. Antique china rose, pastel pinks, delicate vintage jewellery. It’s all about capturing the essence of femininity & that delicious light feeling of all that is pink rose and pearl trinkets, light hearted love and girliness … Rose by any other name 005

Mellow Yellow

Finding more yellow pieces of antique china to put aside for the new project …

The yellow bowl is Crown Ducal.

Crown Ducal was a brand name for AG Richardson & Co Stoke on Trent, manufactured sometime between 1915 and 1934

The small dish is Carlton Ware, a famous Stoke on Trent based pottery manufacturer. The company is best remembered for its often rather garish tableware, often in the form of highly decorated leaves or fruit, and the ceramic toucans it made as promotional items for Guinness.  It reached its artistic high-point with superb hand-painted domestic pottery in high art deco styles during the 1920s and 1930.
