There's Always One More Piece

3.31.2017

Collectors know that the collecting doesn't seem to ever stop. There is always one more piece out there to be added to the collection. It seems that is what is going on with my ironstone collection. There is always one more piece that catches my eye. I've been adding to my ironstone tureen collection and I think I am going to place a tureen on each shelf of the hutch and take out the smalls, but I'm not sure yet.



I'm being a little picky with my choices for the new tureens. I like the ones that have the unique finial on the lid. This is my newest addition.

I bought this one on Etsy and the description said this piece is bordered in hyacinth and it's a Stafforshire tureen C.1860.







While out shopping yesterday with my friend Shirley of Housepitality Designs, who is in town visiting her mother, I found the most beautiful French tureen.
I'll share that soon.

Have an awesome weekend!

  9. Uh oh. Kim, I think that tureen that "Francetaste" came across with a peach for a final has your name on it. Just sayin'...

  10. Your tureen is of special interest to me since my mother is from Staffordshire. Staffordshire is known as the potteries since so many different china manufacturers are in that region. It is magnificent!

  13. I love your tureens! While in Florida earlier this month, I was antique-ing and found an ironstone set... two tureens (covered serving dishes) and a plate they sat on for $55. I just couldn't bring myself to purchase it, as I felt it was too large of a set for My Wee Abode. But, it was fluted, and just lovely. And what a price!
