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 envisioned leaving something behind when I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could use for reference and inspiration and the unfamilar as introduction. With the best of intentions this is that "something".


For what ever reason there's really not much information around to be found on the subject matter.  It was true throughout my collecting and it remains true even now. That being said there was one wonderful exception - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough good things can be said about it, even when looking through it today, and its influence on what I collected.


My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking blue and white transfer printed spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting it obviously left some mark on me.


The website's initial concept was to be continually updated with pictures of collections of others. This unfortunately proved a little naive with hindsight given inquiries went ignored and after a while I stopped asking.


Hopefully the website is being found useful and worthy of mention to others.
