The story of this little treasure

I have only a few pieces of Mauchline Ware because it has become so collectable it is harder to find. I was lucky enough to find a few items together in an auction not long ago, so I pounced! I imagine this lot was put together by a collector but I like to think that maybe they had been passed down through a family as a record of one member’s travels around the British Isles!

*In case you were wondering when the Clifton Suspension Bridge was ‘new’, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s amazing work of engineering was opened in 1864. Thirty three years in the making, it is now one of the oldest surviving iron bridges in the world. No wonder souvenirs were made to celebrate it!
