can't get enough of: antique stoneware bottles



Hooray! it's my birthday! so i've chosen one of my Favorite Things to spotlight today, purely for inspiration's sake: British stoneware bottles. Love these so much. I grew up with my grandmother collecting Dundee marmalade jars and storing paintbrushes and pens in them, so they have a special place in my heart.





Images courtesy of (from top); dianemariet's flickr stream; colonel blink's flickr stream (images 2 and 4); willow and stone, a UK company; and, my favorite, Rattibo's flickr stream-- check out her "antique" tag. Gorgeous photos of a small child clutching large stoneware jars.)

These are truly lovely; it's wonderful when the outside is as beautiful as the inside; Dundee marmelade and really good ginger beer. The design is so timeless and evocative at the same time it's hard to believe it was ever "designed"....Harry
