I've always wanted to visit an English china works. It's nice that Spode has a museum. My mother was a ceramic teacher since I was 8 yrs old, had her own kiln although she worked for a small ceramic shop and I, you might say, grew up in the business. Loved looking at all the lovely designs. Thank you for taking us with you.
Everyone's Christmas travel is curtailed this year. We are in Florida and our kids are in Virginia and Montreal. NOBODY is going to travel so we will open our Christmas presents on Skype this year. the US has the same problems with historical sites not receiving monetary support. When the kids decide on family vacations they want to go to Disneyworld instead of colonial Williamsburg, Civil War battlefields, or even national parks. Parents need to teach their children how interesting and important historical sites are and they need to visit them to help them earn money for upkeep and preservation and continuing archeological studies.
You are in your lovely olive green tweed woolens. Reminds me of my life up north in the US. I love antique malls and usually buy interesting linens or embroidered items rather than dishes or baskets or figurines. And if you only buy something you absolutely adore, then you are more likely not to hoard. Buying something you are only lukewarm about means it will end up stashed in a cupboard somewhere and you will run across it five years from now and wonder why you ever bought it. I am at the point that if I bring something into my home I get rid of an equivalent item. And at age 69, I am starting to really want to get rid of stuff and give a lot to my kids. i never use my china so am ready to give that to one of my kids, but who nowadays collects china? It's not like in the 1950s when everyone would have a full set of at least one pattern of china, sometimes more. I do not entertain enough to justify keeping it....I donate a lot to local Goodwill shops and take a lot to my church's rummage sales held twice a year. I do have Spode Christmas tree china.
Wow! Spode China is so beautiful & unique! Amazing! I couldn't believe a China "Museum" could be so awesome. I loved it! So many beautiful pieces.The Antique Store was also amazing! Lots of treasure there. I loved the biscuit jar you were looking at. Even although it was too large for your needs it was really lovely.Thank you for another awesome experience! All your videos are treasures & so are both of you. God bless!
This may be not the right video but I just thought you'd like to know that the woodland spode plates you bought can be purchased via this link, 4 plates for £20 with free delivery!!!! It's not spam, it's the company I work for here in Stoke on trent 😊
Antique hunting has been one of my favorite things to do, I've been doing it for fifty years and have some really lovely things. So watching your Antique browsing video's from the comfort of my chair is the best. We have some really large antique centers in Australia too where you can easily spend a whole day just browsing and eating. I loved seeing inside the Blue Room at Spode, their traditional patterns and shades of blue certainly have an interesting story to tell, and the china you purchased will give you lots of pleasure. btw I love your almost matching Jackets, that tweed style seems to have made a big come back. I bought a lovely large herringbone style long jacket in Leeds in the sixties and can still wear it although I don't, and it's still in a brand new condition. Loved your video although I couldn't quite make out what you were saying exactly because of your masks..thank you once again. John
That was lovely. Thank you for showing us the heritage place with all the porcelain. I have my great grandmothers blue willow pattern china from Staffordshire, England. There are a few earlier pieces of floral flow blue that have survived the generations as well and being shipped to the USA. I have just started my own channel of reselling a few months ago. I can only hope I get to the point where I can do such lovely videos as you two do.
Hello again! What a great visit you gave us all today. I also love to look at dishes and the special trip to the "blue room" was amazing! Thank you again Kirsten and Joerg. Love the idea of thinking of how to make our small holidays special this year. In the US, we also are facing our Thanksgiving Holiday as well as Christmas without being able to see family. Making it special by using your new plates is a great idea. As always, thank you for the visit and stay well. God Bless.
Hi Kirsten and Joerg :-). Thanks so much for sharing this excellent video :-). I greatly appreciate it :-). Thanks so much indeed for sharing this it was really really fun to watch I have to say :-). Nice looking museums and I would so love to pay a visit there in the future :-). Hopefully in 2021 I'll pay a visit there since I'm not travelling up north at the moment. The only times I've ever travelled up north was whenever visiting Uncle John one of my really closely beloved relatives. I hope to see him in 2021, I should certainly think he'll still be alive by 2021 despite mobility issues but I shall certainly see you two :-). I like exploring museums or heritage locations very very much like you two Kirsten and Joerg I really really do :-). Thanks so much for sharing this excellent video I thoroughtly enjoyed every minute of this :-). Alright then, have a nice evening you two and take grave care of yourselves :-).
From your friend Foxy :-).
What a pleasant shopping day! I enjoy antique shops like Bygone Times and the Spode Heritage Center and Museum Shop was fun. My education is in Historical Archaeology so when (as a graduate student and early career) I see all that China, it would often be in the form of shards only. We were eager to find bits and pieces with trademarks. So much of the ceramics found in historic privies and fort communities in the US from 1800s was like what you see in the a Blue Room of the Spode Museum. I appreciate your last comments about supporting the museums that rely on visitors and their purchasing from the museum shop, especially now during uncertain times. I have worked for historical museums and funding is often weighing on their ability to offer more programs. Thank you❤️
So romantic really. I love Spode but I do not own one single piece. Maybe someday I could find some that I could afford. I think the favorite piece that I noticed on your little documentary here was the picture that had a Little man’s face on the end of it. That was very unusual in the Spode blue room. Keep upThe good work it’s so exciting to see you guys every week.
I would love to see you visit the Wedgwood factory in Barlaston, in Stoke-on-Trent. They have the most beautiful cafeteria/dining room where Joerg could eat to his heart’s content and all served on their finest China. It is beautifully landscaped and you can also do a factory tour where you will see ware being made and decorated. It is fascinating Must take the camera with you. I used to work in the offices there in the 1970s.
I have a smaller dish like the one at 19:50 with the holes in the insert. I can tell my plate is old but in very good condition. What did he say the plate was used for? I thought I heard him say for steaming but I’m not sure. I collect Blue and white, red and white and some black and white Spode. I’m obsessed! I also collect Green and White transfer ware if the color is right. I’m one of those “hoarders”. Lol. Love your videos.
Oh I LOVED the Spode collection !! I have the Buttercup china that I inherited from my mother who received it as wedding gifts in the 1940's . Many of the pieces were missing by the time I received it so I would have been thrilled to be there and purchase some of those lovely plates and serving pieces to replace the ones that have been broken or lost over the years!! Love the blue Spode too and having those would be a lovely addition to any home. Thanks so much for the tour !!!!!
when you were looking at the camera to see if it was one like you have... in the back ground was white and pink T or coffee pot and couple other things i was like screaming i need them .. haha ... i have all those type of pottery on my dark oak welsh dresser (which i had hand made by a craftsman when i was 17.). had a eye for things then.... ..... beautiful video as always xx............ also you should come down to devon and cornwall nice cornish pasties xx
