Hutch of Blue and White China

Blue and white China in my Hutch

I feel like this is my big reveal - I finally get to display my blue and white china in the china hutch I bought back in July.  After the Christmas decorations were put away, I started 'finding' my scattered collection of blue and white china.  I haven't gathered together my blue and white china and looked it over, ever.  Since I didn't have the space to display it, I kept it packed in various places, even as I added to the collection.   

This display is eclectic and disorganized, to say the least.  I will get more proficient at displaying china in my hutch as the years go on.  Right now, I guess I am using the hutch as a leisurely way to sort and catalog my china collection.  Seeing what I have, so to speak.  With four children, and a patient husband who would prefer less clutter, I have been keeping my china well out of the way (and out of sight!)  The husband can't complain about 'too much china' if it is stashed in out of the way corners of the basement.

The middle row has some of my favorite china, including my authentic "flow blue" china.  I'd love to be able to display an entire cabinet of flow blue, but for now I am happy to see the handful of pieces I have.  I think I will catalog (and blog?) my flow blue pieces on a different day.

You have a beautiful collection of blue and white. Oh so pretty!

Sue said...

Having more blue/white like your collection is what I'm shooting for! Thanks for asking me to pop over to see it all. :-) You have some nice patterns here and it does look good all mixed together.
I'll be looking for more once the sales start up in a couple of months. It's always fun to be on the hunt for something specific.

I like your display.

Anna said...

Very nice. I love blue glass, and blue/white china, too.

sweet european dreams said...

these blues are fabulous, but I'm really amazed at all your different collections. My grandmother was an avid china collector, but for now I don't collect china much - we move too often and I would KILL the Army if they busted up some sweet innocent china! I'll live vicariously through your collections for now! -diane

You have a beautiful collection of blues. I just posted the other day with my blues. It was the first time I had pulled them all together. I was surprised that I had enough for my china cabinet. ;)

I love flow blue dishes too. I have a small collection and it grows very gradually cause they're so rare and so expensive. You have a great display and I love your hutch cause it holds a lot....Christine

What a beautiful display of blue and white dishes!!! So lovely and crisp. I don't have any blue and white, although I have sold a few pieces on my Etsy shop, but I sure did like it the short time it was in my possession.

Hi Jean...just wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful hutch with us at The Inspiration Gallery...I shared this blue hutch on my FB page today...xo

Jann Olson said...

Jeanne, you have an amazing collection! I think you displayed it beautifully. I recently went to a friends home and she took me downstairs for the first time. She had an amazing collection of 'flow blue'. I had never heard of it before. I had seen a piece or two before, but didn't know what it was. Thanks for sharing the link with me!
hugs,
Jann
