National Trust Homes of Great Britain, revisited

It's been a couple of years since we last checked on the National Trust Homes of Great Britain Web site. We though it was about time to check back to see if there have been any updates.
Well, indeed there have been! So many new pieces of majolica in National Trust homes have been identified, we thought we'd share some of them with you.

From Tyntesfield, a Victorian Gothic Revival house in Bristol, North Summerset we find these gorgeous Minton jardinières.

From Speke Hall in Merseyside comes this lovely George Jones server and Holdcroft vase

From Greenway, Devon Souh West, the holiday home of author Agatha Cristie, this George Jones terrine

From Mount Stewart, County Down Northern Island, we see this asparagus plate and Minton charger.

From Tatton Park Cheshire, North West we have these Minton jardinières and ewer

From Standen House and Garden, West Sussex, this unusual checkerboard

From Calke Abbey, Derbyshire a pair of George Jones jardinières, a Minton garden seat, a Minton oyster server and a lion footed jardinière

From Snowshill Manor and garden this wonderful Mafra tea ware

To visit some of these wonderful estates and for more information on the National Trust Homes go to their Web site.
