In filing and generally trying to clean up my office today I was putting some old china catalogues in a binder when I noticed a nice 8.5" x 11" color brochure mailed to me in 1983 from Robin Importers, Inc. 510 Madison Ave., NY NY.... They must have used a mailing list from a Wedgwood "club" to which I belonged. There are lovely color photos of various china and Queen's Ware patterns, with the pattern name printed below ... Adams-Lancaster, Mikasa-Silk Flowers, WedgEwood-Flying Cloud, WedgEwood-Potpourii [sic] ... so much for shiny color catalogues being of any better quality than something lesser! The moral is probably to not ignore smaller companies who can spell but maybe have less "slick" promotional material!!
