When my Mom passed away, I inherited these lovely “Hollyhock” dinner plates made by Sovereign Pottery. I can’t remember which side of the family they first came from, my Mom’s or my Dad’s. It’s just one of many things I wish I had asked… well, I think I did ask, but I didn’t cement it into my head… same result…
I would guess that these plates would be at least 75 years old, perhaps older, and not one of them has a chip or a crack. Of course they are completely crazed, but I think it simply adds to the charm.
I processed this image in LR and used kk_berrily by Kim Klassen. I think it added just the right amount of light and warmth.

Please forgive me for including a few of your recent posts in this one reply but I wanted to say how entirely beautiful the peonie shot on the the 5th July was – it always makes me think how much I would love to pay you to decorate my home. I truly love your style. I looked at the beautiful shot you’ve taken with you mum’s plate. I so wish I had have taken at least one plate from my nana’s favourite ‘special’ crockery selection – from memory the word ‘orchid’ was involved but I just wish I had a piece. Thank you for continuing to make your blog a pleasure to read and view. Renee.
A most gorgeous plate and presentation!

This is wonderful Barb. Isn’t it a good feeling to have beautiful old things that once belonged to your family? Who knew we’d be able to use these things in our photography? I’m wondering just how long it took you to spread all those little floral pieces around to get your shot? LOL
The plate is so lovely as well as your editing. I can just imagine how great the tea would probably taste from one of the cups that match your lovely plates. :)
Beautiful Mom! What an pretty way to honour those plates…so lovely!
Your are so talented…amazing photo and I love how your creativity just took over the plate. Outstanding!
