Pink Saturday, Wedgwood Pink Fantasy Bird Plate, Queen Elizabeth II Australia

I want to welcome you to my Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound post.

I remembered I had this Wedgwood, England plate with a really bright, marbled pink, almost magenta bordered plate with a fantasy bird theme that was made in between 1906-1911.

The plate is six sided or hexagonal shape. Fantasy birds is a generic term for the birds with no possible identity...fantastic visions out of an artist's head, which were frequently seen on china in England from the Victorian age until the 2nd World War. They originally were copied from oriental motifs, many being thought to exist in that area, but turning out to be Far Eastern artist's license as well. I think they are charming and indeed, "fantastic"!

For more info on the Wedgwood Pink Fantasy birds plate at Time Was Antiques, click on the photo.

And a photo of Queen Elizabeth II on walkabout in Australia today during her Australian State Visit.

Have a great day and enjoy the Pink Saturday blog party!

The Queen is in Brisbane now and her visit is proving very popular. A bit of controversy because our Prime Minister did not curtsy when meeting the Queen. I know I would curtsy if I was ever lucky enough to be introdiced to H.R.H.
