 A pictorial website promoting the beauty and collection of blue & white transfer-printed and cream colored  ceramic feeders from 18th and 19th century England

When I was collecting I always felt a sense of obligation to leave something behind once I stopped - nothing big and scholarly but something that collectors could use as a visual source of reference and those unfamiliar as a source of introduction. With all its limitations this website is that "something".

 

My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when I was young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother which she used when she was young and ill. While it did not result in instant collecting I am confident it certainly planted the seed.

 

Collectors of ceramic feeders quickly realize that there's not much information about the subject out there to be found. It was true when I started and it was true when I stopped. That being said there was one incredible exception - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough positive things can be said about the book and its impact and influence over me and what I ended up enjoying and collecting.

 

Hopefully this website is worthy of your repeated visits and positive recommendation.

 

Warm regards, TheFeederGuy
