Quail

My first love in china/ceramics/ironstone, has always been blue and white, with Flow Blue at the very tippy top!!!  In second place is red or brown transferware...........


Recently, while visiting Jacqueline at Cabin and Cottage, love her blogs and her photos are outstanding......you have to visit her and I would do a link if I could figure it out!!!  Anywho, she showed a cup/saucer in the Quail pattern by Furnivals.  and I remembered how much I always loved that pattern, but have never really seen any of those pieces any where.   Time passes, Life happens.........

Visited my local antique mall on Thursday and I saw it, right there in the center of a table-----Quail pattern, coffee pot-----------it immediately seduced me and whispered my name..........I moved quickly before it vanished and it became mine!!!!  and it was 15% off, I mean, was that meant to be or what????  Oh, the thrill of it all!!!

 
Then, as I became filled with lust, I perused the net and found the matching cream and sugar at a steal with free shipping on top of it all!!!  They arrived today, Monday, how fast was that???

So sweet and utterly charming........more of a burnt sienna than a dark brown.........I am in love with this delicate design......oh, happy Autumn!!!!
