A pictorial website promoting the beauty and collection of blue & white transfer-printed and cream colored ceramic feeders from the 19th Century 

While collecting I always wanted to leave something behind once I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors might use for reference and those that followed as introduction. This website is that "something".


One quickly realizes when collecting that there's not much information about the subject out there to be found. That being said there was one wonderful surprise - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough positive things can be said about the book's influence and impact over what I became interested in. 


My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother which she used when young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting it undoubtedly planted a seed.


This website's initial concept was to be continually updated with pictures of collections of others This unfortunantly proved not possible. For what ever reason all hints and sugestions went ignored and after a while I stopped trying. 


I appreciate your visit, TheFeederGuy.
