This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt made me think of pottery, one of my great loves. The top two images I’ve chosen have illustrations, which I think connect them with their eras in a particular way.

  1. Great coincidences…today is Dicken’s birthday…or did you do that on purpose? I don’t understand the second photo, which looks as if it’s an early attempt at motion pictures. But just look at all those jugs in the production pottery! I’ll stick to “hobby craft” for my pottery!

    Commemorative plates are always popular. The second, with the hole in the center, must be meant to spin and thereby see boxers hitting each other. Not necessarily anything that would interest me, but obviously meant enough to some to be worth creating such a piece. Mass production pieces, if made long ago, can be interesting.

    I seem to recall we have a couple of such “theme plates” stashed away somewhere but nothing like as beautiful as your first image.
