…of my new birdie brooches!
Still in progress – they need their pins – but I rather like them so far.
I thought I would share one of my favourite collections.
I don’t know anything about these bird dishes, other than that they are ceramic and were made by Carlton Ware in the mid 1960s.
Despite exhaustive internet research (well, ok, I googled Carlton Ware plus various descriptions) I haven’t been able to find a single reference to them.
I picked up my birdies on eBay over the last few years. They don’t come up very often and these days I can’t really afford them when they do.
I think my little flock is big enough now anyway.
If you look carefully, you can see that the one above got broken in the post – one of the drawbacks of eBay.
Thank heavens for superglue.
Bird of a feather, stuck together.
