Sandy also brought me this little pitcher to add to my collection of M.E. Hadley pottery. The Hadley Pottery Company is located in Louisville, Kentucky, and the designs on each piece are hand-painted.
Since we live in an old farmhouse, the rural country scenes depicted on these pottery pieces really appeal to me.
I'm not sure how Sandy finds these little treasures. I literally look everywhere I go for Shawnee miniatures and have not found one in recent years...Sandy has now found two, which she very thoughtfully has given to me. (Don't you love flea market friends?)
My "new" Shawnee piece will now live with my other Shawnee miniatures...
in this little cupboard...
in a corner of my kitchen.
Mark Twain said, "The very marks on the bottom of a piece of rare crockery are able to throw me into a gibbering ecstasy." Mr. Twain...I agree!
Yours in gibbering ecstasy,
