While I have my corner Cabinet of Curiosities, my dear friend Marta has a gorgeous 18th c. corner cabinet filled with an enviable collection of creamware. Guarded by a Staffordshire dog, Marta’s grouping of delicate plates rimmed with lacy reticulated designs, tureens with pierced lids and rose blooms, and elegant teapots with rope handles, is one of the prettiest collections of old and new creamware I’ve ever seen.

So here’s a little back story. This refined style of glazed earthenware pottery, most recognized by its rich creamy color, was developed in England circa 1760 by Josiah Wedgewood. Also produced by other potters in Europe and the U.S. over the years, many forms and styles were created, including those with colored glazes and image transfers.

The creamware I’m collecting is pure and creamy new white Wedgewood mugs that I enjoy each and every morning filled with that perfect cup of hot coffee.

Happy collecting and decorating!

Love, Nora

    It’s so interesting to see what other people collect and how they display their treasures.
    Like you, I use the pieces that I have a passion for. When I realized that Tasha Tudor used her priceless antiques every day I said ‘why not’!!!
    I look forward to these posts. Linda
