TREASURES FROM THE GLENDALE ANTIQUE MALL
Wedgwood and Johnson Brothers
Wedgwood Patrician Tea Cup
After driving through flooding and horrid downpours of endless rain, my mother-in- law(Darleen) and I arrived in Glendale, KY Friday morning of April 4Th and began our weekend antiquing excursion. More and more primitive pieces seem to be finding their way into these shops and if I collected primitives I would be in 7Th heaven. Much to my delight, in my favorite antique shop, the former Greyhound Bus Station, I found 4 great Wedgwood Patrician cream ware tea cups and saucers, a Wedgwood platter and a small German cream ware pitcher with what looks to be a fox hunting scene complete with an elongated fox serving as the handle. This pitcher was just one of those pieces that when you come across you literally grab it out of a nagging fear that the person behind you might just get it if you don't act quickly. In the above pictures I have the Wedgwood tea cups displayed with my Johnson Brothers Harvest Time collection, the German Pitcher, and a close up of one of the teacups. More treasures to come in future Franklin posts.....
