Jolly good. Straight to the pool room lads.

Always on the hunt for an offering from the Johnson Bros.

Saucer: View Halloo [Fox hunt call (don’t say that quickly) when the fox is seen in the open.]

Fancy? $20.00 and it’s yours.

The Johnson family reunion. Almost the whole gang.

Those Johnson Brothers. You’ve got to hand it to them.
Still looking sharp after all these years. [Circa 1960’s]

Once I bought a single blue dinner plate off a hungry looking guy at Surry Hills Market for 70 cents.  And so began a little obsession.

So smooth, modern and dishwasherable* yet also beautifully vintage. I have MANY things now in this range and palette from either Johnson Brothers UK or Johnson of Australia. This is my favourite colour. [Blue Cloud]. I have quite a collection in a lovely creamy white too.

I like the blue. It makes me happy.
