  1. This plate has a tale to tell. PA

  2. Whilst 'studying' abroad my junior year at New Haven, I stayed a few months at Cambridge. The Fitzwilliam Museum has a remarkable collection and English and Irish Delft and, although this was many years ago, the displays for the pieces were actual place settings from the 1600s' and 1700s'. I have been to several Delft museums in The Neatherlands, but none had a finer collection than the Fitzwilliam. Next time one is near Cambridge, this collection is truly a must see.

  3. Nice tableware a real luxury in days gone past - love old plates.
