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

"An object in a museum case must suffer the de-natured existence of an animal in a zoo. In any museum the object dies - of soffocation and the public gaze - whereas private ownership confers on the owner the right and the need to touch. As a young child will reach out to handle the thing it names, so the passionate collector, his eye in harmony with his hand, restores to the object the life-giving touch of its maker."   -  Bruce Chatwin, 1988





I always wanted to leave something behind that helps collectors and encourages collecting. This website is that "something".


When collecting one quickly realizes that there's not much information out there to be found. It was true when I started collected and it remains true today. Hopefully this website helps fills that void a little as well.


The website's initial concept centered on being continually updated with pictures of new collections. This unfortunately proved wishfull thinking rather quickly when all invitations extended went ignored. For this I appoligize.
