Mountains, water, skies


Just before the pandemic hit I made a trip to Scotland, and I absolutely loved it: the water, the wind, the beautiful light of the purple rain-filled skies with the sun peeking through the clouds, and the very friendly people. I would have loved to explore more this year, but there is no travel right now! So today, let's take a porcelain journey up to Glasgow.

This set of 6 little plates was made by Bell in Glasgow in about 1860, and they have wonderful hand painted Scottish water landscapes on them. And, very Victorian, hot pink rims!
