The most endearing facet of Wedgwood collecting may be that there is always something new, not new production, but new news, new findings, new discoveries. Just when we think we know all about a subject relative to Wedgwood products, people and potteries, something else pops up. Click here to read an article from today's New York Times about a rare find, a book in progress by Eric Ravilious during World War II which has been lost for all these years. He was killed before he could finish it, but it appears someone will indeed finish it for him. Enjoy!

The Brits will spend all weekend, and it's a four day weekend for them, watching so many activities on the local telly in honor of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. What an opportunity to use one's Wedgwood china for sipping a cuppa, eating scones with clotted cream and jam, flying the Union Jack in the USA to show our British roots and so much more. The Wedgwood company, aka WWRD, has produced lovely china items in honor of the occasion, as have many of the Staffordshire potteries. It's also a great opportunity to view your royalty commemorative collection and add items, especially if you haven't been shopping much in that arena lately. You can click here to see our royalty commemorative offerings. Of course, buying a piece of Wedgwood is a nice idea for the holiday weekend too! You will find 2,000 things from which to pick at our website, www.alexisantiques.com, everything there is in stock and ready to ship. We were fascinated to learn of the vast array of Jubilee activities in other cities ~ Naples, FL is one good example, check out the link! Here is another great article with additional links that we in the USA can enjoy. Enjoy the totally British weekend wherever you may be! Long Live the Queen!
