Beautiful Plates

I went to Birmingham Museum recently with my mum, and saw their amazing collection of tin glazed ceramics from the 17th/18th centuries. There were also jugs, tiles, bowls and all sorts else, but these plates were my favourites. I don't think the two at the bottom are tin glazed, or from the 17th century, but I love them all the same.

We also saw the incredible Staffordshire Hoard, which is touring the country at the moment, but I wasn't allowed to take any photos of that. Suffice to say, it was amazing. I think it's in Stoke-on-Trent now, but have a look on the website for where else it's headed http://www.staffordshirehoard.org.uk/
