“The glaze on an antique piece of Limoges over a hundred years old will show no signs of crackling or crazing, and if it has not broken, a piece will look as beautiful as the day it was produced.” This comes from Debby Dubay, a Limoges collector/ expert at Limoges Antiques.
I don’t know why this fact shocked me, but it rattled my craze - loving cage!!
I simply adore the crazing that happens to china over time. Every tiny runner in the surface tells a little part of it’s story.
So, I tagged along with G-Man to Georgia yesterday. I junked while he worked.
I found some incredible china pieces…all perfectly crazed.
This is my favorite one. I was so scared that it was unaffordable. I carefully turned it over…No price – they were trying to close…she said “Oh, $10.00” to which I replied, “will you take $8.00? ” “Sure”, she said. “SOLD”, I said!
This one is actually craze free…but I love it anyway.
How sweet are these tiny flowers and the faded gold rim?
Lovin’ the little knob.
This was a great price too.
I love odd floral plates. This one is sweeeet! (and fuzzy!)
And yep, totally crazed!
More flowers, more fuzz…
I still don’t know how G-Man got ahead of me here!!!
This charming building was just around the corner from the store above. I love old cracked buildings, too. It’s perfect except for the tree.
Somebody please call the pruning police, there has been another ‘crape murder’.
