|Brynwood Needleworks - Farmhouse Built-in Buffet|
The trucks will be arriving with our belongings today, but won't be emptied until the weekend. As with the loading, we've hired Moving Staffers™ to handle moving our things into the farmhouse. While I wait for more boxes and furniture, I emptied a box that has been here since our last trip north.
The box contained some of my favorite pieces of English transferware, and more than a few antiques. In the upper shelf of the cabinet are a few of my antique Toby mugs. I have Toby teapots and Royal Doulton Toby jugs that will join these pieces soon.
|Brynwood Needleworks - Antique Transferware|
The bowl and pitcher set belonged to my mother-in-law. The pattern is "Reverie" from Alfred Meakin. Next to it is a large cheese keeper. The label/mark on the bottom is "Victoria Ware" Ironstone. It's actually quite large and heavy!
Some of my Johnson Brothers "Old Britain Castles" bowls are in the upper cabinet, waiting for the rest of this set to arrive.
|Brynwood Needleworks - Antique Duck Casserole|
On the other end of the counter is my antique duck casserole. This one is also ironstone, but has no visible-to-me makers mark.
In the cabinet above on this end (temporarily) are my three dog plates...a black Labrador Retriever, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a yellow Labrador Retriever. These will eventually hang, but I haven't yet decided where.
Once the truck is unloaded, I'll have more dishes to place, but the last - my much-loved Spode - is with Handsome. When he brings that with him, our farmhouse china cabinet will be complete.
