Vintage China Marks


Awhile back, I found this nifty little antique book at an antiques store. Now, if you know me, you know how much I loooooove old china -- especially old Spode. It's something of an obsession with me, but I haven't bought any plates in a really long time, due to my desire to economize. Anyway, I was so delighted when I discovered that this old book is an index of old china factories, potteries, and china marks!
Each page has lists of factories, dates, and marks -- it's amazing, really. (At least for me, the china-enthusiast.) At first I thought I'd keep the book for reference, but it's really falling apart. Also, the pages are so interesting, and have such great images and an aged patina, that I decided the best use of this book would be for art and papercrafting. I'm planning to use it for projects, but I've also listed pages from it for sale in my etsy shop. So, if you're as excited about it as I am, you can find it there!
