Polish Pottery


I cleared my dresser and washed all my pottery and arranged it. This collection is know as Boleslawiec, from the region of Poland where it is made. I have collected it since the time I lived in Warsaw in the early 1990s. The background colours are blue and white, with other colours incorporated into different designs, so the patterns all go together. They are hand painted and stamped. I never get tired of looking at all the patterns and textures, and I think you will agree they all sit well together. In fact I think my dresser was made for it, despite the fact it was built for my 1920s house in England
