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

Welcome  -

 

While collecting I always felt a sense of obligation to leave something behind when I stopped - nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could use for visual reference and others as introduction. This website is that "something".

 

My introduction to ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted blue & white cup belonging to my grandmother which she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting I credit it for planting the seed.

 

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

 

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

 

Kindest regards,
