Out and About - Pear Tree


If you would rather stand barefooted on the cool, textured tile and admire a crisp collection


than empty your purse for a pair of matching shoes


then you are in luck.  Pear Tree Design and Antiques has received their shipment, including the most delightful blue and white porcelain.

Beautiful. I do adore Pear Tree Design and Antiques and my dear husband works right around the corner.
I think a lunch date might need to be scheduled and a trip there.
Those plates are stunning.

Blue and white porcelain is so wonderfully timeless. I definitely need to add this to my list of places to visit next time I'm in KC.

Thanks for the lovely description. Do you know whether that bottom plate is Chinese or Japanese?

Mrs. Blandings said...

Sorry for any confusion - Kansas City, MO.

Ever since you posted this series I have paged down to it again and again. That first picture of the two chairs and the blue platters on the wall - it is ethereal. The whites which are not white at all against the blue pottery, oh my my my. Takes my breath away - colors and textures that only time can produce.

The power of decorating is to some degree about novelity. If I were to copy this in one of my rooms, probably after awhile its power would decrease with familarity. I would hate to lose the quite wonder of that picture if I brought it to life in my home. But now I can visit it as often as I like on your website. Many thanks. Ann
