Witches and Gardens

Royal Doulton Witches series tiny plate. This one is only two inches wide. It is the only one of this size I ever came across.


This is a very large coffee cup which holds about a cup and a half of liquid.


This is the most common Royal Doulton Witch series pitcher.


Pewter witch door knocker


Old German metal witch


Hand painted Scandinavian witches


Witch candlesticks by E.O. Brody, Cleveland, Ohio. I did not realize until I was photographing these that the bowl at the top is actually the witch's broom. A candle goes in the middle of the bowl and candy is held around it.


I still can't get a good shot of these red roses and I still can't remember their name? It looks better if you click on it.



New Dawn rose

Love the tea cup! I have to say your roses are beautiful! I have to pick mine before the deer get them!

I'm still looking for the ultimate kitchen witch. My dad was from Norway and he always insisted we have one. I wish I would have wrestled the one from my childhood from the oldest sib, but he's a real a-hole and wouldn't give up one thing. I keep hoping I'll find one just as old and cronish. I love the stuff you find. I never ever run into things with witches on them, but I sure love them!

That witches series from Royal Doulton is so very beautiful, but so very expensive. I would love to collect some pieces, because I love the colours and the little witches which are used.
The roses are gorgeous. I love New Dawn very much too !!!

Did I type that?
