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

Welcome  -


My introduction to ceramic feeders came when I was young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when she was young. While the event did not trigger instant collecting odds are it planted a seed.


While collecting a slow and gradual sense of obligation developed to leave something behind whenever I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could use as a visual point of reference and the unfamiliar as an introduction. This website is that "something".


One quickly realizes when collecting that there's not much information about the subject out there to find.  It was true earlier and its still true today. With that said there was one exception requiring highlight - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute".  There are not enough positive things I can say about the book, its impact on what I collected and its continued influence regarding what I still enjoy today.


Hopefully this website is worthy of your time, continued visits and  recommendation to others.


Kindest regards,
