I have a passion !
for a pretty plate, it doesn't even have to be in perfect condition. If I love it, I love it !
Over the years I have collected many, some are now chipped, some cracked and a few broken. I am not precious about them, this is the beauty of paying (mostly) pennies for my lovelies.
I use them everyday, the family are used to my mismatched bits and pieces. I think it adds to their beauty. I will say though that I don't put food on the cracked and chipped ones for obvious reasons but I cannot bear to part with them.
A Selection of my lovely plates
My most expensive single purchase £4.50 for this totally too die for Johnson Bros Pareek Bone china plate
Really pretty Noritake Plate
I love the fact that the guilding is worn on this gorgous softest of soft pink plate (make unknown)
