Also known as China Plate Print/Wedgwood Print/Blue Antique Floral
This has been a favorite print of mine for as long as I can remember. I recall being at the beach one day when I was about five years old. There I was walking up and down the shore in search for little treasures. Whole shells, sea glass, and of course sand dollars were always a joy to find, but little did I know that one day I'd discover something completely new. On my quest I found three little pieces of white glass with a blue drawing on them. Straight away I ran to my mother asking questions a mile a minute. What is this from? Where is it from? Why is there a picture on it? She answered all of my questions about these three little pieces. I'd like to think that when curiously examining these plate pieces is when I fell in love with this delicate print.
From then on whenever I'm at a store and see something with the porcelain pattern, I get really excited and always gush about how pretty it is to whoever I'm with. The excitement is only heightened when it's something other than a plate with this print. I absolutely love when inspiration is taken from mundane things and applied to a completely different form. This happened the other day when I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond with my mother. I saw the most beautiful bedding with this print and that's what sparked me to make up this wishlist.
It only makes sense that this lovely blue and white antique design would look good on more than just a plate. With its pristine and exquisite details it surely adds a touch of femininity to any piece. Your eye can't help but be drawn in.
Are you as head over heels with this print as I am? Which is your favorite piece?
