Good day to all! I wanted to share my latest find with you. Will you join me in my excitement? I found this gorgeously crazed ironstone platter during a not-so-thrilling shopping experience yesterday. Thankfully I was able to come away with this beauty in hand.
Measuring in at 16" x 11.5", it's a pretty decent sized platter. According to www.thepotteries.org, my lovely ironstone has the markings used between 1890 - 1907. Cool, eh? I won't reveal how much I paid for it though. It's somewhat shameful how cheap it was.
Don't you think this J&G Meakin platter is crack-a-lackin', but without all the cracks? (It does have a lot of crazing though, which is definitely my thing.)
See the neat little "14" impressed on the bottom? It's about the details, folks. It's all about the details. ;)
That's enough about me and my fabulous find...now onto the real goodies! Kathy of Sylvia's Vintage Daughter is celebrating her 1 year anniversary as a blogger! Yippeeee! Congrats to Kathy! Take a stroll on over to check out her giveaway! It ends Saturday, March 5th, so don't miss out!
