I should never assume about Fridays & Trianon Ware

I have this thing in my head that Fridays are not good days for hitting the Op Shops, but I did today and I proved my self wrong again.

The Romantic Homes was not from a charity shop , of course (!) but it is my favourite magazine and once a month I splurge and spoil myself with it. Let me tell you the pages get dogeared!
I found a beautifully elegant Blue Johnson Bros. gravy jug and saucer in fab condition,

This sweet little Vintage Lady with no makers marks but she has all the indicators of age and full of nostalgic character don't you think...

and this cute pastel Trianon Ware Jug. Which leads me to the next subject - Trianon Ware. I have another jug I found a while back by the same maker. This is going to become another collectable for me I fear.
Does anyone know anything about them?

Have a wonderful weekend all!

The boys have their last weekend before back to school for their final term. Big Boy Too (my baby) starts school next year (sniff!).

Oh Irene, you should never assume a particular day isnt good in op shops, they can be very unpredictable! I love the johnson bros jug, what colour is it?I have many of them, it is adorable!
As for the other, im not too sure, I cant say I have seen any, as a lover of jugs, I would remember if I had!
My son has just started his two week break, and then he has his last term of school forever!
It is hard with such big changes, and you are only starting out!
Love the mag, I buy it too.

Great finds - love the pitchers!! Did not find anything on them but seems the glassware is rather valuable...

Nice finds! Have a great week!!

op shops are weird arent they. Sometimes you can spend a whole day looking and find zip, other days you find heaps. Mind you its not like the glory days any more is it??! Lovely finds!
