If I Owned a Colonial Home...

I would decorate it with Colonial household items. I can imagine the Colonial American housewife took as much, if not more, pleasure in setting up her home with practical, useful, and beautiful items. She took pride in her tea service and washbowl and pitcher. She cherished her handmade quilts, and took special care of any porcelain chinaware she was fortunate to own.

Here are a few examples of what you might find in a Colonial House.

Balsalt was a hard black glass stoneware manufactured by Josiah Wedgwood from about 1768.

Cauliflower ware: Sometime in the 1760s, a potter named William Greatbach created cauliflower tureens, cabbage bowls, lettuce pots, pineapple teapots and stands. Josiah Wedgwood did the glazing.

Salt Glazed Earthenware

Jasper Ware was created and manufactured by Josiah Wedgewood. It has a fine grain and is unglazed.

Do you have any of these in your collection. Share with us at Colonial Quills your favorites.

and it is a decent resolution after you have a cough or a cold too.

Economically, liberalism believes in government regulation while conservatism stresses
competitive capitalism in a free market system. The Plenty can
be described as a robust and powerful hand-held
unit. Very few companies offer return shipping so the main thing to
focus on is the warranty offered with each unit and it's features.
