My passion for collecting blue and white started so many years ago, I can hardly remember a time that I wasn’t afflicted with this obsession! Blue and white has graced the walls and tables of my home for over 40 years.
Definitely a “china-holic” and more specifically a “blue and white-aholic”, I will be posting a series on collecting blue and white for your home, particularly for entertaining. So subscribe now, because some lucky subscriber will win Carolyne Roehm’s exquisite book “A Passion for Blue and White”, at the end of my blue and white series.
Get ready to be inspired to start your own collection of blue and white or dust off your existing collection!
The classic colors of sea and sky, in a profusion of tones have inspired collectors for centuries and captured the hearts of so many around the world. From magnificent patterns such as Royal Copenhagen’s elegant Blue Fluted-Full Lace for formal entertaining,
to the more casual Blue Willow pattern….
To Burleigh‘s “Victorian Chintz “…
to Pickard‘s “South Hampton”…
and a multitude of antique flow blue patterns.
Or perhaps your blue and white passion is for a new enamelware collection, like “Blue Crab” by Golden Rabbit.
There are also a great mix of transitional and contemporary patterns such as the ones pictured below for a fresh, crisp approach to blue and white collecting.
Lenox’s “Tin Can Alley” mixed with Waechtersbach,
or Dansk’s “Arabesque” mixed with Homer Laughun’s “Cobalt Fiesta”.
There’s a blue and white collection for every taste, entertaining style, and budget. With this wealth of styles and range of prices, blue and white is a great choice for new as well as seasoned collectors!
And so- in my series on blue and white, I will inspire you to collect, mix, and enjoy blue and white. After all, what’s the point of collecting if your treasures stay in the cupboard and never get used?
And by the way, its never too early to start collecting blue and white…
