I have mentioned previously that I have a liking of strawberry-themed items in the kitchen. Also, I believe I've mentioned that I enjoy browsing through antique stores. Several different such shopping trips were required through the years for me to "build" this collection.
Are you able to see that there are strawberries decorating the outside of these items? That is the first - and only - reason I was drawn to them. It was a "learning moment" when someone at one of the shops mentioned McCoy Pottery! Now, I had no knowledge that McCoy Pottery is desired by some collectors. I was just interested in the strawberry trimming them! Only two of the pieces are marked with the McCoy engraving - the pitcher in the middle and the small teapot on the right. I'm sure the other pieces are reproductions, but that is no bother to me. We have enjoyed using these pieces through the years, and I'm sure a cookie jar - or two - will be placed in a more accessible location on occasion.:-) We often use the pitcher as well.
It was really good of The Husband to take time in his gardening schedule to help take care of these recent projects. He has had some other things underway recently, and that will be the subject of the next post.
Thank you so much for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
