A Few of My Favorite Things - My lusterware!

My Lusterware!

I'm not quite sure what made me start collecting lusterware. I suppose I would see just a few pieces in
antique stores, but not a lot. Then Mary Engelbreight had a very nice collection featured in one of her books about her home.
The salt and pepper shakers were pieces I blogged about recently and as I learned today from a little research were probably not made in Japan as all of my other pieces were.

In case you are wondering about the framed pieces the top one is a Buzza print titled "Friendship" and created in 1925.
I think the one in the lower picture might be as well however it is not marked on the back.
I love looking at these pieces.
These are just a few of my favorite things.
