Automobile China by Royal Doulton
By David Bausch
Nothing speaks of the Edwardian era more clearly then the series of china produced by Royal Doulton of England. This china was designed by John Holdcroft, and was known as the Motorist Series. This series was produced in its factory in Burslem England from the years 1903-1913.
I just got back from a three day trip to Yamaguchi in the West of Japan. From my house roughly 8 hours by car with my family. It was the first time I have been there. It is well known for the hot springs that are everywhere. I took the waters and thought of Baden Baden.
Dating Faience Pottery(10/1/08) Faience pottery, also known as Fayence in France, is often used as a synonym to Majolica because of their similar appearance and use of tin glaze. Yet, most collectors distinguish Faience pottery by their characteristic polychrome (multi-colored) designs and mostly white background, whereas Majolica tends to have decoration all over along with pronounced raised decorative details (relief).
Aztecs(9/3/08) the Aztecs I have on question have been in my possession for several years. I found them in an old store that has since closed up. I’ve enjoyed them, scanned them over a thousand times but also know that they are not to stay with me. Like most people, times are hard and needs must be met.
