I think you all remember the story where Maggie and I visited an antique and collectables shop in Victoria and found a near complete dinner setting that Maggie remembers from her Grandmother and one she had been searching for for many years.

At that stage all we had was a chipped and cracked small jug.

To cut a long story short we carted it around in the back of the car for weeks while we continued our trip.

Like said above it is only a partial set and I would love to be able to build it up to an 8 piece setting and also collect some jugs, serving platters and serving bowls etc.  Sadly it seems it is quite an unusual design and rarely appears on eBay or Gumtree.

Now I know a lot of you wander in and out of antique and collectables places around the country so wondering if you could keep an eye out for us.

We are willing to pay reasonable for bits and pieces.

You have seen the design many times on here since we got it.  Made in England by G&J Meakin. It has a distinct pattern around the edges only.

Please, please let me know if you see any.

We will keep this in mind when we do some treasure hunting of our own. We have a couple of antique places in Newcastle we could check out when we are next in their vicinity. We would check with you before we purchased any items to ensure we get it right.
Cheers Muzz & Judy

Thanks for that Brian, but we are only looking for the particular pattern in my photos.

They sure are nice though.  Why aren't you using them yourself???  We even have vintage crockery in the caravan.

Brian, if you really don't want it I can take it off your hands for you.  We have family that also love this sort of thing so it will get used for sure.
