I love ironstone.
It's one of my favourite things I collect, and probably my most extensive.
And while most of my collection consists of pitchers, I love finding different pieces that I don't see very often. These are a few small pieces I've picked up over the past few months that I especially like.
To be honest, I don't actually remember where I found this ironstone soap dish. I believe it was locally, but all I remember was that I think I paid $5 for it.
Fresh flowers and my glass soap dispenser sit with it.
It sits beside my kitchen sink and holds my brushes. It's an old soap dish from a vanity set, but it works just as well as a brush holder.
I also picked this tiny little pot up at Oliver and Rust.
It's beautifully aged, with crazing and a lovely browning. And it has the most beautiful faces in the sides.
I also picked this other one, of the same size, from the same show. It has beautifully detailed handles, and a charming little lid.
It's marked Coxon and Co., a name that I hadn't yet come across.
