Dishes with a lesson

Speaking of dishes,

and collections.

A collection that will still be around our house for as long as I'm around is our collection of Torquay Motto Ware.  There's quite a lot and it's placed along shelves among the books.

"Torquay is the generic name given to 20 potteries centered around the popular seaside resort of the same name in South Devon, England, that made red earthenware with slip decoration in the form of a picture. Many also sported brief sayings on them, thus the name Motto Ware."

One particular piece makes me happy 

One piece which seems especially  timely right now makes me sad with its truth
