So my enamel-painted cockerels group has a beautiful Pratt ware counterpart, made from the same molds. If I didn't already have my group, I might be tempted. But I am sure this figure too will find a loving home.
I collect enamel-painted earthenware figures but, as this blog posting and the previous one show, I am fascinated by the linkages between 'my' wares and all others, both pottery and porcelain. Their interconnections shouldn't surprise me because we are dealing with quite a short time period in which these treasures were wrought.
And for all of you who write me about my beloved pup and the blog's co-author, Johnny Be Goode. Here he is at 4 months and a few days, doing what he loves best: chewing. I am in love!
