johnson eggs

My collection of Johnson ware includes egg cups.

Today it’s all about the yellow (although I do have matching egg cups in blue, green and pink). And the roses (they’re Johnson too).

Yes, it’s all quite sunny and summery and rosy at our house this morning!

Two years ago I started a collection of Johnson ware cups because 1. I liked the fineness of the china and 2. they could handle the dishwasher.  They cheer me up immensely for my morning cup of coffee, and it is lovely to serve tea to anyone who pops past with some nice china and a teapot.   With these out you can’t go wrong!

Op shops are a great source of Johnson ware, but as it is becoming more popular and less of it is out there to be discovered for a bargain, there are other more reliable places to shop … the secondhand shop on High Street in Thornbury, for example, sells mixed china for $5 a piece.
