Two-Toned Love

Hi everyone!

Last week I waxed on all lyrical like about how I can never find any two-toned Grindley utility china.  Well apparently the way utility china works is that if you ask you will receive.

First up, from eBay I won this lovely Grindly Lupin coffee pot.  Its a small one, but oh so very pretty.

And then, and then, I found this amazing Grindley Petal mini teapot at Spitalfields!  I tried to chat up the vender as I bargained her down a bit (it was well over priced).  I would have liked to have told her that I collect  this stuff and ask her if she often has it, or just let her know that if she brings it, I will buy it.  However, she wasn't having any of it.  In fact, she was rather off putting.  I think that under normal circumstances I wouldn't buy from her again, but you know that I don't have that type of restraint.

So here it  is, my entire two-toned Grindley collection, including a piece that I've yet to blog about.  It was just an over-cite really.  For whatever reason I didn't take its picture with the rest of them and now its way to dark for me to get anything good.  I'll just use it as a teaser!

Last time, besides whining about the cost of two-toned Grindley, I also brought up showing pictures of the backstamps.  I love it when I read other blogs and the backstamp is included.  It helps me to compare what I have to what others are looking for.  Plus I like all the little designs.  Do you find them to be interesting, or do you just skip over them?  Do you find that is odd that my jug is bigger than my coffee pot? 

I’m going to link up with Her Library Adventures and Flea Market finds, Magpie Monday at Me and my Shadow, Thrift Share Monday at Apron Thrift Girl and Thrifty Love over at Cap Creations.
