The blue and white period

SC72 post 19 November - Shabby Chic


I used to collect blue and white plates, mainly from junk stores, and this is what remains of the collection. One of the first collected is the one with a touch of yellow in it. It came from a pub junk room about 50+ years ago. The small plate just above it to the right is the most recent, and was bought in Amsterdam about 20 years ago. I keep thinking of taking them to a charity shop, but then I'd have a bare patch of wall. ;-)

I love the girl with the pearl earring. Did you know the painter Vermeer lived in Delft, the same city as the origin of Delft blue?

Yes I do know that, and I have read the book too.

A lot of holes to deal with if you ever decide to take them all down !! I have a pottery tea service it's white with raised blue roses but no makers mark it's obviously old

Such a great idea, and each piece must have its own history. Lovely plates.

Magnifique. On retrouve ce bleu sur nos azulejos et même nos assiettes. Sans pas une coïncidence.
