News-Antique.com - Sep 06,2009 - A range of dining and room layouts based around collectible tableware is now on display at Potteryjoy. Based around themes including Coffee Break, Afternoon Tea, Working Lunch, and Dinner for Two, the place settings and interiors illustrate the best of mid to late 20th century pottery and porcelain as it was designed to be, with tea, coffee, biscuits and sandwiches ready to enjoy.
Anne who runs Potteryjoy finds that many of her customers are buying replacement pieces to maintain or complete their sets, but herself enjoys a mix'n'match approach. "I've always liked mixing and matching things from different sources. I find it much more interesting than just going out and buying sets of made-to-match items. It usually works out cheaper too!".
The Potteryjoy settings bring together a range of items based on Anne's stock, but also on her favorite events, "take the Afternoon Tea set for instance: I love afternoon tea and I always maintain that its invention is one of England’s greatest contributions to civilization!".
All the items displayed are labeled with their designer or maker so browsers can seek further information. Anne comments, "Often a customer will tell me that the item they are buying from me is something that they have been looking for for a long time. To be able to help someone in that way is one of the best aspects of what I do". Anne can be contacted through the CollectFair Antiques Center which hosts the Potteryjoy site.
