Ceramics & Porcelain

Seymour Mann ceramics

Blue & White China

Seymour Mann ceramics, except for the cups and saucers with small creamer. Those were a gift, and they are called eggshell porcelain made in China. All of these are vintage with the Chinese marks. The pitcher at the far right is supposed to be a chocolate pot, although one person said it was a creamer. The pitcher on the left is a chocolate pot, too. I treasure my "blue and white" vintage Chinese collection. I have more, but these are all that would fit on this cabinet shelf.

Blue and white ceramics

These are my latest acquisitions, also vintage with the Chinese marks on the bottom.


Blue Delft Creamer Cow, made in Holland.
Always loved these since I was little.


Turnip salt and pepper

Turnip Salt and Pepper - Sometimes I cannot resist picking up the "unusual" from the thrift shops. While it is not my intention to collect salt & peppers, they just sometimes wind up in my collections, especially if they resemble fruits or vegetables!




China Cannister

Recently found this China cannister at a thrift store.  It is very nice, and definitely vintage with the Chinese mark on the bottom.  If anything says "Made in China" on the bottom, it's modern.  I have found a few nice ceramic things that are modern and made in China, but I'm mainly looking for the Chinese mark that shows a vintage item.



Ginger Jar

Ginger Jar - not high quality, but I've always wanted a Ginger Jar! I'll keep looking for a better one, of course. In the meanwhile, I have this one. Definitely hand-painted, and that has to mean something.


Miniature tea set


Miniature Tea Set - I've had this for decades, and don't know where it came from. But it is really cute and worthy of this collection.
