Show and tell Friday is hosted by Kelli at There is No Place Like Home
This week’s suggested topic is "a special item in your bedroom."
I thought I’d share this table in a corner of my bedroom. I currently use it to display Wedgwood jasper ware that I have acquired over many years from various sources. Wedgwood began producing wares in the 1760s, and the factory is still in production today.
In the center is a tiny dish with Josiah Wedgwood (1730-1795), the founder of the company. The creamer and teacup and saucer have glazed interiors.
On the left side are a set of miniature books with Shakespeare’s works and a ceramic tulip bell from Italy.
My first piece, the little plate with the swirled border, was bought at Jordan Marsh department store. Next to the bell is a little plate was a thrift shop find for 50 cents due to a small chip. The mug with the façade of Saint Paul’s Cathedral was found in a local antique shop. From eBay I got the creamer and teacup and saucer, missing out on the sugar and teapot. I was in England in summer 1995 and bought the small covered box as a memento.
Other jasper ware items are on top of a bookshelf across the room. The bowl was from a local jewelry store, and the vase from a mail order to Puerto Rico.
