The Wedgwood That Isn't...

Wedgwood???? No!





THIS is Wedgwood! Right? Of course it is! The WEDGWOOD we all know and love.





But would you be shocked and baffled to find out that this too is known as
Wedgwood?





No one really knows how it came about or who started it, but to Chintzers
(chintz collectors ;) these FABULOUS pieces of Royal Winton chintz with
these exquisite embossed ivory borders are known are "Wedgwood".





These are rather large "chop plates"...I added the playing card so you can get an
idea of just how big they are...the black plate is called "Hazel" and I actually outbid Jo Anne Welsh one of the queens of chintz, to get it on Ebay!! (Not that I remember or
anything! ;)




Could you imagine a table set entirely in Wedgwood??? Tres dreamy!



It's once again time for Cindy's SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY ...don't miss it!

  2. Oh Sweetie...
    These plates are absolutely beautiful and I have never seen anything so gorgeous. Both colors are just delightful, but boy that black one sure is an element of surprise. I love it.

    I love the detailed textured outside pieces of the plate. So detailed and so elegant. Sure makes you stop and take notice.

    I thank you so much for sharing with me this evening. I am thrilled as they sure are pretty. Who would have known Wedgewood, has more than one pattern and style. The centers of your plates look like a hugs garden of delight.

    Have a beautiful Friday sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry

  13. I can not get enough good china and to be honest I don't own a complete set of anything. But probably do have bits and pieces from 30 different patterns. A woman can never have enough shoes, handbags, lipsticks or sets of fine china.

  19. I love Wedgewood of any sort and your plates are exquisite. What a find.
    Ah, I have a Royal Winton Chintz teapot. It's kinda hard to find Winton chintz at an affordable price these days or I'd have more ;)
