My Ironstone Collection

For the past couple of years I've being, slowly, collecting pieces of ironstone. I love the beauty and simplicity of ironstone, and specially the story behind each piece. I got some pieces at the Brimfield Antique show, some others at my local antique mall, and a very few at my local thrift store. This is always very exciting, when I found ironstone at the thrift store!! 
I also love to display ironstone platters, dishes and small bowls in my walls. 
I decided to change things around in my hutch and display my ironstone collection here. 
This is how it looked before. 





It was a mix mach of ironstone, silver and crystal pieces. 


And here it is now, filled up with all my beautiful ironstone!











Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

  1. I played with my ironstone today, too! I don't have enough to fill up my cabinet so I had to mix in a couple of glass cake plates and a silver tray full of old glass bottles/shakers. Your arrangement looks so pretty!

  4. I love ironstone too! Especially the pitchers and creamers. So utilitarian.;-) Your collection looks so pretty in your cabinet!

  5. I love your beautiful ironstone collection! The big pitchers at the top have the prettiest curves. I think they look wonderful grouped together in that gorgeous grey cabinet. That cabinet looks like it was meant to house those pieces. I like how you added some greenery at the bottom too.

  6. Hi Cristina. ;)

    Thanks for your comment about my family room filled with too much brown. I actually am painting the accent table just as you suggested.

    Just wanted to let you know that you comment says No Reply Blogger.

    I love your grayish china cabinet and the large white pitchers are real eye catchers!
