More Polish Pottery ...


As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we are buying a house across town ... and I am packing up my goodies.  When I lived in the Netherlands, I spent a weekend shopping for Polish Pottery with other military spouses.  


I was drawn to this non-traditional pattern with the tulips - it will always remind me of the Netherlands!


From the Netherlands, we moved to Fort Meade, MD (then to Hawaiian and back to Fort Meade). I found the tea pot below in a local thrift shop. Although it has the hallmark for Bolesławiec, Poland - the Mecca for Polish Pottery - I believe this is a vintage item before the pottery became popular.
 

Do you have a favorite piece of pottery?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  Comments are open through Saturday, August 8, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 9.

  4. I am totally unfamiliar with Polish Pottery - I do have some pieces of American pottery (some from Williamsburg Va and others I don't know where it is from) - an probably some from Great Britain that came from older family members.

  5. Love this post. We just returned stateside from Europe and yes! It's more or less a requirement for military spouses to collect Polish pottery while you're stationed overseas. At least that's what I told my husband. ;)

  7. I have a small, delft vase that we got in the Netherlands on one of my shelves. It reminds me of when we went to Europe many, many years ago.
