Ironstone Teapot

Like a new baby in the family, just one new addition can make a big difference. Even if it's something small.

My something new and small is an English ironstone teapot. Suddenly the complementary pieces I've had put away come to mind, and I have to go on a short hunt for them.

My small white Royal Albert creamer and sugar get a new companion to hang out with after my recent mini road trip south.

Though they are bone china, they'll do the trick.

I look for ironstone wherever I go. Especially unlikely spots. Because I know if I do chance upon a piece it will probably be a good price.

Enter one white, wheat pattern, Royal Staffordshire teapot requiring no dickering with the dealer! Such a small price to pay for happiness. . . .

Hope you're having a fine china day too!
Ciao! for now!

I love white dishes.... ironstone, china, milk glass... It can be mixed and matched and add pizzaz to colored dishes as well.

Oooo... that's a pretty one! This post brought to mind two memories. One, how I'd go out every weekend and bring home something new from the yard sales and it would prompt a whole house clean up just to find the perfect spot for the new piece. The other memory from about 20 years ago, was finding an antique ironstone pitcher in a very odd place. Under the kitchen sink, unnoticed by the rest of the crowd. Still it cost me a whopping $12.

The gold handle is just gorgeous!

Love that wheat pattern and LOVE the teapot. Perfect. Have you also seen the acorn and leaf pattern?

I have the wheat pattern on a large platter. Maybe you should donate your teapot to my collection...or maybe I should...Never mind. I love it.
