the first of my collections that I hope to show off. and one of the largest: Johnson of Australia stoneware.
the thrill of unearthing a new design makes this collection ongoing. currently the design range stands at 37.
they fill the kitchen cupboard, and spill into the lounge room.
the count is enough to service a restaurant. a bit embarrassing really: 92 side plates and 153 dinner plates.
and we use our Johnson ware at every meal. & a small tip about vintage crockery and the crazing of the glaze that they often have: it's caused by not using it often enough. who'd have thought it. so get that special dinner set out and enjoy those pretty designs everyday.
then there's the teacups, teapots, milk and cream jugs, salt & pepper shakers and sugar bowls: to come in part 2.
do you have a collection? maybe you collect Johnson crockery too?
