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

While collecting I always thought about possibly leaving something when I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could use for reference and others as introduction. This is that "something".


A secondary reason for leaving something behind was there's really not much information about the subject out there. It was true when I started collecting and it was true when I stopped. That being said there is one wonderful exception - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough positive things can be said about the book's influence over what I collected.


My introduction to ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting it had to have planted the seed.


The website's initial concept was to be regularly updated with the collections of others. This unfortunately proved unrealistic. All initial inquiries went ignored and after a while I stopped inquiring.


Hopefully the website is useful to some.


Best, TheFeederGuy
